Microsoft to release Windows Vista SP1 release on February 15th? runs a story about DRAM supplies getting short this year. He 
mentions Vista SP1 might be a trigger for more DRAM demand:

"Nanya's Pai said that in 2007 major PC OEMs had limited amounts to spend on 
DRAM because of rising panel and battery prices.

He expects the PC market to have a drop in sales in the first quarter, which 
will be deeper than the ones in previous years because of strong shipments 
by PC OEMs to retail channels in the fourth quarter.

But the PC market will rebound in the second quarter, he said. The launch of 
an updated version of Microsoft Vista on February 15, if its prices do not 
go up too much compared to its previous version, may help boost DRAM sales, 
Pai added."

I haven't confirmed this date with Microsoft yet. When I have I will post 

"Not everything that counts can be counted, and not everything that can be 
counted counts."

Specifically it adds support for Bluetooth 2.1, a new "Unified Pairing" interface as well as "Windows Connect Now" updates and can only be installed on Vista SP1.
