New Vista SP1 Code Leaks to Web

Paying customers may not get their hands on Windows Vista Service Pack 1 (SP1) or Windows Server 2008 for weeks, but pirates can download the brand-new code for either today, according to searches at several BitTorrent trackers.

The RTM, or release to manufacturing, versions of both operating systems can easily be found on BitTorrent tracker sites such as the Pirate Bay, which has made them available since yesterday.

I'm not going to the trouble of burning a disc, and erasing my hard drive files for a service pack.

Windows service packs are .exes.
They work the same way as Windows updates, as that's what they basically are.

Correct. To get the service pack on your computer and run it, you need to completely reinstall Vista. Thanks +Bubble.

There is a standalone installer that is floating around, you do not need to reinstall vista, and is ~500meg :)
