Microsoft COO downplays Vista update problems

Slashdot It! Microsoft's chief operating officer has dismissed concerns that an update to its flagship Windows Vista operating system is incompatible with a number of applications. Speaking at the CeBit trade show in Hannover, Germany, on Tuesday, Microsoft's third-in-command, Kevin Turner, told ZDNet UK that the software giant is not concerned by the problems that Vista Service Pack 1 (SP1) has encountered with some third-party programs. "No, (we're) not at all worried," Turner told ZDNet UK. "We've had several million downloads of SP1. We're very excited about it. It still hasn't been officially released, but we're excited about it." Vista SP1 is already available to subscribers to the Microsoft Developer Network (MSDN) but will not receive a formal public release until mid-March. Two weeks ago, Microsoft published a list of programs that would experience reduced functionality, or not work at all, after the installation of SP1. Microsoft customers have also been complaining that the update has upset the functionality on their machines.
