Microsoft Windows XP sp 1

For a big package of bug fixes, the first Windows XP Service Pack (SP1) has certainly drummed up a lot of interest in the media--and rightly so. Not only does Service Pack 1, released on September 9, make changes demanded by Microsoft's settlement with the U.S. Department of Justice, it also crams in more than 300 bug fixes, security patches, and OS updates. On the other hand, we didn't notice improved speed or stability in informal tests, and SP1's highly touted ability to change Windows' default apps for services such as Web browsing and instant messaging don't amount to a hill of beans at this point. Plus, the service pack weighs in at a whopping 133MB (though you can get a scaled-down 20MB to 30MB version if you've been regularly downloading Windows updates), and it demands more than 500MB of free disk space. Get it for the security patches if you have a fast connection and a roomy drive, but don't pay the $10 shipping cost for the CD; you can get crucial security fixes from Windows Update.

Windows XP SP1, finally?

August 28 2002-Originally expected today, and then delayed until the end of this week, Windows XP Service Pack 1 (SP1) will now ship within ten days, according to Microsoft. The software giant announced the delivery schedule late Tuesday in an effort to comply with part of its proposed settlement with the US Department of Justice (DOJ), which specifies a time table for delivering compliance changes. These changes are part of SP1, Microsoft says.
XP SP1 includes Internet Explorer 6 Service Pack 1 (SP1), support for USB 2.0, a number of security and bug fixes, along with the new Set Program Access and Defaults UI component, which was required by Microsoft's DOJ settlement proposal. Set Program Access and Defaults lets users choose whether to hide certain XP middleware applications, including Internet Explorer, Outlook Express, Windows Media Player, Windows Messenger, and Microsoft's Virtual Machine for Java. Third party applications can register with the UI and have their icons appear in a list of available middleware applications. This will let users choose which applications appear in the XP UI, Microsoft says.

Welcome to the Windows XP Service Pack 1 page, where we will be collecting news and info pertaining to the first windows xp service pack, we will also be providing links and info on how to obtain it, and what it can do for you and Windows XP. We will be posting updates and more news and info as it becomes availible, I haven't tested it yet myself, I'm waiting until they release the final version of service pack 1.
Windows XP Service Pack 1 (SP1) consists of three main areas:
  • Enhanced security, reliability and Compatibility - Post-RTM Security fixes and hot-fixes, compatibility updates, and a new Messenger version.
  • New capabilities - USB 2.0 support, optional .NET Framework, enabling technologies for new devices such as Tablet PCs, "Freestyle" PCs, and "Mira" display hardware.
  • Consent decree compliance - New UI components, including Configure Program Defaults.
XP1 SP1 will include a roll-up of all of the security patches that have been released for Windows XP since that product RTM'd last year, Sullivan said. This includes critical updates that were created during the extensive Trustworthy Computing code review that occurred in February/March 2002. "The Windows Division underwent a rigorous code review," he told me, "We've changed our entire software development process because of the Trustworthy Computing initiative."
XP SP1 will also include Windows Messenger 4.7, a new version that includes updated security features and the Add/Remove capabilities required by the consent decree compliance. Windows Messenger 4.7 will become available as a free download as well, shortly before SP1 ships this fall.
Microsoft's controversial Windows Product Activation (WPA) technology is also seeing two minor modifications in XP SP1, neither of which will affect any legitimate users. First, the company discovered that the majority of pirated XP copies out there are tied to single volume license product key. So Microsoft has alerted the company about the problem, changed their key, and disabled it for use after SP1. So anyone using this pirated key will be unable to upgrade to SP1 or any future updates via Windows Update, Sullivan said.
Also, Microsoft is adding a three-day grace period for people that use the same product key to install XP on two different systems; in the past, there was no grace period and the user had to immediately activation via phone in order to use XP on the second system. This will give users some breathing room if disaster strikes and you have to install XP on a new system.
XP SP1 will enter beta in a couple of weeks, with a release candidate (RC) phase expected this summer and RTM (Release To Manufacturing) due between July and September. SP1 will be available for free download or via CD for the cost of shipping and handling. Additionally, the Windows XP retail packaging will be updated to include SP1. That is, beginning in October, all retail copies of XP will include the SP1 code, slipstreamed into the Gold version of XP. Sullivan told me that Microsoft hadn't decided yet how the SP1 version would be differentiated from the Gold version, other than that the included CD-ROM would mention SP1 in some way. The retail box may include a sticker, but the company is concerned that customers might think they need to purchase another Windows version if a "new version" sticker is used.

UPDATE: Windows XP SP1 build 1081 leaked

UPDATE has reported that 1081 has been released to testers, and it looks like they are on pace to release the service pack in late August.
Posted on
Move over 1079, 1081 is in town!
Yep we can confirm with the help of Arnaudt & Bunnios that build 1081 of Service Pack 1 has been released to oems and employees today. This build has not been released to testers.
The file size is 130,601,560 and as of posting there is no additional installation details, we can assume however that IE and MSN follow the trend bumping up their respective build numbers up from 1079 release.
No word on final build numbers and release date yet, the build is also too new for public downloads... we'll keep you posted.

Windows XP Service Pack 1 released internally

The website Bink Windows XP, has been reporting on the releases of the service pack, 1060, 1063, 1065, ect, and actually has links where you can download it to try it yourself. Apparently Microsoft had added code which could tell from which employee the code came from, but there are already ways around that, so no worries there. They listed this link here that contains the readme for service pack 1. They also give you tips on how to install it on the corporate version and get it too work.

Microsoft Upgrades XP With Service Pack

SP1 expected to ship this summer, adding bug fixes and support for upcoming Mira, Freestyle, and Tablet PCs.
Beta-testing for the first service pack update to Microsoft Windows XP will begin within weeks, with release expected this summer. The free update will include a selection of bug, security, and compatibility fixes--many of which are already available as separate downloads.
Release of this service pack could prompt a surge in adoption of Windows XP by some companies that traditionally wait for this milestone before upgrading to a new operating system. Desktop PCs running Windows XP will outnumber those running Windows 98 by late 2003, says Dan Kusnetzky, vice president with the market-research firm IDC. The ambitious update had a slow start compared with that of its predecessor.
"The release of SP 1 for Windows XP is likely to cause companies in the pilot-project phase of software adoption to feel comfortable enough to move forward with their adoption plans," Kusnetzky says. However, there's little in this service pack for current Windows XP users to get excited about, especially if they've religiously (or automatically) downloaded updates through Microsoft's Windows Update Web site. Aside from the fixes, the service pack update looks forward; it adds support for several upcoming PC designs--such as the Tablet PC--as well as Microsoft's forthcoming .Net Web services.

XP makeover highlights antitrust tweaks

Microsoft is finalizing a major makeover for Windows XP that's intended to make it easier for consumers to choose third-party software over Microsoft's own products.
Within the next few weeks, the software giant plans to begin testing Service Pack 1 for Windows XP, the first major update to the operating system, which was launched in October.
Some of the more significant changes, such as those allowing consumers and PC makers to override Microsoft's default products, are a direct response to the continuing antitrust case against the Redmond, Wash.-based company.
The service pack will ship this summer to PC makers and will be available as a free download from the company's Web site. As previously reported, the service pack will contain bug fixes, tweaks and compatibility updates, as have similar releases for previous versions of Windows.

Gartner's Windows XP SP1 advice

Microsoft recently issued a beta test version of SP1 for Windows XP.
Enterprises shouldn't let the many issues swirling around SP1 confuse them--SP1 should be straightforward for them. SP1 offers modest improvements that will not affect most enterprises significantly. Some security-conscious enterprises may have delayed XP deployments. Although SP1 does not include any security features not released through Windows Update or as hot fixes, it may signal these firms to proceed with their deployments. In any case, Gartner never recommended that most enterprises wait for this reason.
Three other issues will have minimal impact on enterprises. First, SP1 will let PC makers swap out some Microsoft applications--the Internet browser, media player, instant messaging and e-mail clients, and Java virtual machine. PC vendors will thus get more flexibility in how they configure their machines, which they can use to strike deals with other software vendors and generate extra revenue. But Gartner doesn't think users will ultimately see much lower prices.
