    KB894199 = the Windows servicing update that is needed for Vista/Server 2008 SP2. SP2 will probably released about a month after that and a few months later via Windows Update / WSUS. OEMs will get SP2 2 months after Windows 7 is released, but the service pack will be available before that time.
