    Now all we need is Vista SP2 to actually appear on the website, it really annoys me that they are OEM'ing SP2 but won't let the rest of us update for a while.

    Don't worry it has only been a few days since release. It will make it to the public sector soon enough.

    logic_earth, so why in a recent statement did Microsoft say it could well be the end of June before we get it?

    No, you got it backwards. It is OEM distribution rights that will not get it until late. After 60 days of Windows 7 GA will OEMs be able to distribute SP2. End-users will be able to download it by the end of May.

    As always, do remember that when Microsoft announces that a product is RTM, it doesn't mean you will be able to download it right away....Actual public release or Release to web (RTW) will occur about a month after RTM.
