    It's irrelevant to me, since things like this on Vista caused me to switch to linux. The fundamental issue remains that companies seem to feel that you don't own the software and so since they think they still own it they can control what you do with it.

    I can't remember where but I read that SP1 was gonna be released mid FEB, not MARCH. Have I been reading lies again or did MS just move it up?

    Yes, I can 100% confirm there is an iso being released with sp1 integrated for both x86 and x64 :thumb:

    There is also 3 .exe updates..
    a) "escrow" version, which is english only just over 400mb for x86, unknown size for x64.
    b) 5 or 6 lanuage update pack for most common lanuages at about 450mb for x86, unknown size for x64.
    c) full 36 lanuage update which is about 550mb for x86 and about 894mb for x64.

    However I beleive that only b) and c) will be released to the public.

    If you downloaded and are running SP1 RC Refresh 2 (6001.18000.080118-1840) - YOU HAVE SP1 RTM. :)

    (You can still download SP1 via WU if you use the registry entry Microsoft announced for RC Refresh 2.)

    Nice to know, I came across a site suggesting it was a few Gb...

    Full walk-through for getting it through Win Update here.

    The linked file is the same reg hack as Quack linked plus full MS instructions (in Word 2007 docx) and the MS EULA. Read the instructions, it's a several-stage process. :nono:

    Now excuse me, I'm off to get it.

    Look, MS have left it available for the eager, you don't expect them to start changing the text too, do you? :lol:

    I'm finding it a bit of a non-event.
