Sounds interesting. I wouldn't be surprised if someone found another way to do it if it indeed gets fixed.

I predicted [COLOR=blue! important][COLOR=blue! important]Microsoft[/COLOR][/COLOR] would hit the 60-million-copies-sold mark with Windows Vista around July 1. On July 26, at its annual Financial Analyst Meeting (FAM), Microsoft officials acknowledged the company has hit that milestone.

At the end of the fist 100 days of sales, at the start of May, Microsoft said it had sold 40 million copies of its client operating system.

With [COLOR=blue! important][COLOR=blue! important]Vista[/COLOR][/COLOR], "We've eclipsed the entire Apple installed base in the first five months of sales," Kevin Turner, Microsoft's Chief Operating Officer, told attendees of FAM.

Turner shared other new Vista statistics on July 26, including:
▪ 2.1 million devices now work with Vista
▪ More than 11,000 Vista-logo'd devices are now on the market
▪ 2,000 applications now have earned the Windows Vista logos
▪ More than 70 business-focused [COLOR=blue! important][COLOR=blue! important]enterprise [COLOR=blue! important]applications[/COLOR][/COLOR][/COLOR] have been made Vista-compatible since the product launched in late January
▪ More than 42 million Vista seats are now covered under volume licensing deals. (However, "Windows Volume Licensing [COLOR=blue! important][COLOR=blue! important]annuity[/COLOR][/COLOR] penetration" is only at 19 percent currently, Turner admitted. Microsoft is pushing hard to grow this number, he said.)
▪ Over the next three years, Microsoft expects more than half of [COLOR=blue! important][COLOR=blue! important]Windows [COLOR=blue! important]PC[/COLOR][/COLOR][/COLOR] unit growth to come from emerging markets.

There's been a lot of negative press around Vista in mainstream media and [COLOR=blue! important][COLOR=blue! important]blogs[/COLOR][/COLOR], as of late. Microsoft is well aware it needs to pull out the stops to counter perceptions that the product has been a flop.

Looks like Google will have to wait at least until 2008, and possibly longer, before it gets search satisfaction from Microsoft on Windows Vista.
Microsoft has said it plans nothing more than a beta for its first Windows Vista Services Pack (SP1) for the rest of 2007, and is not giving dates on a final release date.

The company is apparently delaying SP1, which had been expected this year and - Microsoft promised Google and the US government - would feature updates for Google's desktop search to interoperate with the new operating system.
Mystery now surrounds the fate of SP1. Some reports have pegged the release of this important first security and feature patch at some time in 2009, an uncharacteristically long time for any SP in the lifespan of a Windows operating system.
Others, meanwhile, are suggesting Microsoft is doing away with the SP format for something more modular. These suggestions were given credence as Microsoft this week released a batch of updates in the form of the Vista performance and reliability and the Vista compatibility and reliability pack.
A Microsoft spokesperson would not comment on detailed release plans, but told The Register: "There will be a Windows Vista service pack... service packs are part of the traditional software lifecycle."
