More Windows Vista SP2 Release Date Info

Now that the first Beta version of Windows 7 is already out there and fans are puting it to the test, there is once again talk about Windows Vista and the upcoming release of it second service pack (SP2). According to the rumor mill on the web, Microsoft will delay the release of Windows Vista SP2 by one month, meaning that it will get here some time in May or June.

The thing that you should keep in mind is this: however well-informed these rumors may be, they are still rumors. The other interesting thing is that back in October there word on the web was that Vista SP2 will launch in June 2009; then in November the speculation was on Vista SP2 RC1 dropping in February and SP2 Final in April. The way I see it, this recent places itself right in the middle with its speculating a May release.

It looks like Microsoft has delayed the release of their release candidate and RTM builds by a month. The actual release candidate build has now been delayed till March. The RTM build of Service Pack 2, which was originally scheduled for April, has been delayed until sometime in Q2, 2009. That means a launch in either May or June, barring any further delays,” says Tech ARP, the ones that correctly predicted the release of Vista SP1 and Windows XP SP3.

What does Microsoft have to say about all this? So far the Redmond software developer has yet to issue a response. An official release schedule for Vista SP2 has not been provided and Microsoft has not openly denied nor confirmed the rumors. For the time being Microsoft has only provided Vista SP2 Beta for download as part of a Customer Preview Program (CPP) – it is offered as an update and as an integrated image for TechNet subscribers here.
