Win2K SP1 ready to roll

Coming to a modem near you on Monday

The will it or won't it saga of the first service pack for Windows 2000 is finally at an end.

M$ insiders told The Register today that SP1 has finally been released to manufacture after last minute hitches twice prevented the code going gold.

The clever money is now on SP1 being available for download from Microsoft's site sometime on Monday, with CD copies of the 83Mb patch being available later for the modemly-challenged. ®
