Umm yes they did. Are you Steve Ballmer by chance? Vista is an OS, a tool for doing things on your computer. It's not something worth getting p-ed off about.

Are some great links that show the fact that the release date for SP1 has been shakey. I know the final word is now Q1 2008, but the final word is really when it is actually released.
I don't hate Vista; I use it, and like it. But I am at least realistic about the fact that it has had problems. They had many years to work on the coding, so that's really no excuse. I know Q1 2008 is still a quick release of a service pack, but the fact that we keep hearing different reports is kind of reminiscent of Longhorn and the original Vista release.
I stand by my statement that I'll believe it when I see it. If they actually do get it out in January, I'll be happy.
