In the next few weeks, Microsoft will start private testing of a beta of Service Pack 1 for Vista as well as a third service pack for Windows XP. The company plans initially to release the beta only to 10,000 pre-selected testers, though it may expand that release later. A small group of testers are already working with a “beta preview” version. As for what’s in the Vista update, it’s mostly a collection of existing fixes and tweaks aimed at improving stability and reliability of the operating system, which went on sale to consumers in January. “It is not a delivery vehicle for lots of features,” said Shanen Boettcher, a general manager in the Windows unit.
