    I’m amazed, I have to admit. Rarely do I encounter a blog that’s
    equally educative and interesting, and let me tell you,
    you have hit the nail on the head. The issue is something
    too few people are speaking intelligently about. I’m very happy I came
    across this during my search for something concerning this.

    It is understandable that Microsoft would issue a service pack one week before the release of Vista because Microsoft programmers are continuously finding bugs and problems with the software due to the nature of their programming staff. The reason for such an early release of a service pack may be that Microsoft hires many college graduates with degrees in computer science and software engineering. The code that these graduates write is often full of errors. Instead of going back within the code and changing the errors and deleting faulty code when a bug is found, the error is often simply overwritten. Therefore, the Microsoft operating system is potentially full of bugs and flaws that the consumer does not know about. Since the Vista release date was one week after news of the service pack leaked out into the public, the actual product must have been prepared and shipped to retail stores weeks before the declaration of the Vista release. It must have taken time to manage licensing issues, work out contracts with computer hardware suppliers such as HP and Dell, write a manual, and package and ship the actual cd’s. Since the release of the Vista operating system had already been delayed for months, Microsoft was also under pressure to ship the product into the market. Thus, they could not afford to waste any more time addressing bug fixes, and chose instead to release a relatively stable product and then issue a service pack soon after. This was probably done to cut costs and bolster Microsoft’s stock performance. Investors faith in the company had recently dipped due to the numerous delays associated with the new operating system. Another possible legal issue shrouding the Microsoft name is the new operating system’s similarity to Apple’s operating system, Mac OS X Tiger. This operating system was the first to design video tabs in which moving images would appear and was very advanced in its multimedia design. Software enthusiasts claim that Microsoft stole numerous ideas related to the design and layout of the OS X software and incorporated it into its own.

    Alright, maybe for the common folk, this may seem to be a mistake on Microsoft’s part. However, that is completely WRONG. Think of it like this, the original Windows operating system had about 3.1 million lines of coding. (This was in the late 1980s/early 1990s mind you). Windows XP, had about 40 million lines of code. Microsoft wont even release how many lines of code Vista contains, for it is most definitely the largest piece of program to hit the market.

    For people that are dying to get the new OS on their computer, they will do it, run it, and if any problems, wait for the Service Pack.

    The service pack which is being formulated to release, is going to obviously be a beneficial piece to all who use Vista, not a hassle for them. “We expect Windows Vista SP1 to be a standard service pack that will include security updates and hot fixes, as well as limited other changes focused on improving overall quality,” the Microsoft rep claims.

    People need to take into account that everyday, millions of new viruses and spyware are formed. In order for our computers and operating systems to be protected, there is a need for CONSTANT updating, and from Microsofts stance, having them develop a Service Pack already shows positive light that they are working to keep our computers safe and running at optimal performance, NOT be a hassle for us.
