RELEASE: Windows Vista Service Pack 2 & Windows Server 2008 Service Pack 2 RTMs


[partially taken from the Windows Team Blog]

Today we are announcing the Release to Manufacturing (RTM) of Service Pack 2 (SP2) for Windows Vista and Windows Server 2008. SP2 represents the latest step in Microsoft’s commitment to continuous improvement. It includes all updates that have been delivered since SP1, as well as support for new types of hardware and emerging hardware standards. 

And since it comes with a single installer for both Windows Vista and Windows Server 2008, SP2 will be easy for IT Pros to manage, deploy, and support. For a complete overview of the changes introduced in SP2 for Windows Vista and Windows Server 2008, check out the notable changes document on TechNet.

We expect Windows Vista and Windows Server 2008 SP2 to be publicly available in Q2 2009:
I have a ton of information on the Service Pack itself but I’m currently embargoed so once I get the green light, I’ll open the gates.
