That's the RC1, but with 5 languages.
Not the final build.

Great! Can't wait to install this on my pirated vista, though I'll wait a day or two till pirates release a patch to kill the wga notifications permanently. :D

i cant wait for sp1, most pirated versions will be killed, which brings me joy ^^ (since i spent money on my vista >_>)

office... thats another story lol

Aren't you genuine? Doesn't look like from your avator lol

thus the reason why i sad "office is another story?" :P

but if its anything ive learned, pirating OS's can lead to doom, if ms just decides to put you in the waste buket, leaving you without your data... its just a hassle.

office poses no problems though ^_^

Well, the first Service Pack has supposedly been released to the manufacturers, but Windows Update has nothing so far.

Here's the timing for SP1 availability for current Windows Vista users:

In mid-March, we will release Windows Vista SP1 to Windows Update (in English, French, Spanish, German and Japanese) and to the download center on microsoft.com. Customers who visit Windows Update can choose to install Service Pack 1. If Windows Update determines that the system has one of the drivers we know to be problematic, then Windows Update will not offer SP1. Since we know that some customers may want to update to SP1 anyhow, the download center will allow anyone who wants to install SP1 to do so.
In mid-April, we will begin delivering Windows Vista SP1 to Windows Vista customers who have chosen to have updates downloaded automatically. That said, any system that Windows Update determines has a driver known to not update successfully will not get SP1 automatically. As updates for these drivers become available, they will be installed automatically by Windows Update, which will unblock these systems from getting Service Pack 1. The result is that more and more systems will automatically get SP1, but only when we are confident they will have a good experience.
The remaining languages will RTM in April.
