We briefly deployed Vista a couple of springs ago; have those machines been offered SP2 via our WUS? (and I have no clue if I'm using the right terminology here).

I really don't want to encourage my people to upgrade to Win7 themselves if I can avoid it.  However that means that these people would be "stuck" with Vista until Spring 2013 when we replace their machines again.

From that date onward, Microsoft will no longer provide support or free security updates for Windows Vista Service Pack 1 (SP1). In order to stay secure and continue support you must upgrade to Service Pack 2 (SP2).
