Windows Vista Ultimate SP1 delayed
No support for 31 languages, customers told to play waiting game
Microsoft has admitted that service pack one (SP1) for its Ultimate edition of Windows Vista will not be made available to everyone in mid-March as originally planned, because of a delay with 31 of its language packs.
Vista product manager Nick White said in a blog post yesterday that Microsoft will now ship Vista Ultimate SP1 in two “waves”, with the second one coming “later in 2008”.
Customers running the “premium” version of the operating system on their computers in English, French, German, Japanese and Spanish will be able to get the service pack shortly, according to White.
But the remaining Vista Ultimate computers around the world will not receive the long-awaited update until the 31 language packs, that the software giant is presumably tweaking, are supported in SP1.
