Nick on vista blog has recently talked with —Windows Release Manager, Sven Hallauer, to discuss next steps “regarding product updating via Windows Update”, now that Windows Vista has RTM'd in place. 

Sven discusses the goals behind instituting Windows Update as well as the process entailed in pulling down security updates, fixes and, of course, device drivers.  In terms of driver updates, he notes that many hardware manufacturers had decided to wait until Windows Vista's code was finalized at the RTM milestone before focusing their efforts on developing drivers for the new OS.  Since Windows Vista went RTM, many manufacturers are now working fast and furiously to push out new device drivers that fully support Windows Vista.
