Vista Service Pack 1, XP SP3 Announced

The big news today is Microsoft announcing some details about Vista Service Pack 1.  It goes to beta this year and will be released officially some time early next year.  The buzz is that it tweaks performance of existing features an doesn't really add much in the way of new features.  The other news buried in this announcement is Service Pack 3 for XP. 

In a story on CNET, Windows Unit General Manager Shanen Boettcher was quoted that SP3 would be the last release for XP.  He suggested that service packs were less important these days given all the updates available online.  That's partially true, though many of the continuing updates focus on security rather than performance. 

More on this from Geekzone, Information Week, and the Seattle Post-Intelligencer.
