Typically, Microsoft never makes 'major' changes to any exam. If some exam
material is made invalid because of updates (such as service pack releases,
etc), the invalid material is removed from the exam, but material based on
the new content is not inserted (typically). The link I posted is the
official (and most reliable) information as to the content of the exam. Any
changes to the content would be posted there.

Have a good day.

So theoretically if I wait for SP47 on Vista the exams will be down to 1 or
2 questions?

Given the length of time that it takes MS to release a sevice pack, I doubt
it would ever get that far.
But in the case of Vista, you might not be too far off.

Note: Just kidding Microsoft, please don't pull my certs

Just to make the thread a bit more pedantic....

The trend in service packs has been less and less... consider these facts..

Windows NT - current Service Pack = 6a

Windows 2000 - current Service Pack = 4

Windows XP - current Service Pack = 2 (though 3 is due out any day, and took
forever =and= a new desktop OS just to get!)
-- I would seriously doubt we'd see anything resembling SP4 before the
End Of Life of Windowx XP.

Windows 2003 - current Service Pack = 2 (will we see a Service Pack 3??? --
anybody's guess!)
-- but even if we did see a Service Pack 3 for Windows 2003, I'm fairly
confident it'll be the last one for the product.

I believe 2000, XP, and Win 2003 are all built around the NT core which
would make the reduction in SP's logical. You'd think that the more mature
the product, the fewer service packs they'd have to introduce.

Doesn't Vista have a different core? If so, we might be in for another long
string of SP releases...

Your point is well taken, Chuck.

In fact, I'd also concede that while the NT service packs were almost
exclusively bug fixes,
the service packs of recent years have been more "feature pak" than "bug
fix".

Maybe it just takes longer to build new features.

Ostensibly both Vista and Server 2008 have a new core, if you put any
credence in the increment of the major version number of the OS.
(Windows 2000/XP/2003 were v5.x; Windows Vista/2008 is v6.x)
