Microsoft Corp. late Monday inadvertently confirmed that Windows Vista users will be able to upgrade to Service Pack 1 (SP1) starting tomorrow.
The news had been expected, with some Web sites, including TechARP.com, calling the date several weeks ago.
In an e-mail meant to clarify when Amazon.com could begin shipping retail copies of Vista SP1, a company spokeswoman noted that Vista users could get the update on March 18.
"When looking at Amazon's site, you will see separate listings -- one for pre-orders of Windows Vista with SP1 integrated, and the current version of Windows Vista, which does not include SP1, and can be purchased now and easily updated with SP1 online beginning March 18," the e-mailed statement read.
