Vista SP1 accidentally released yesterday

Posted by Shailendra Doke | Feb 23, 2008

ZDNet reports, Yesterday some people got a surprise - Windows Vista SP1 coming down the Windows Update pipes. Turns out someone at Microsoft flipped the wrong switch.

..Today, a build of SP1 was posted to Windows Update and it was inadvertently made available to a broad group. The build was intended only for our more technically advanced testers, and was meant to only be offered to those with a specific registry key set on their PC. For general availability, we are still planning to make SP1 broadly available in the mid-March timeframe.

To get Vista SP1 you have to wait until mid-March. You were lucky if you got it in yesterdays accidental release.
