Vista SP1 – a few days on and other stuff

February 21, 2008

Well its been a few days now with SP1 in place and so far no problems at all. 

To be honest I haven’t noticed any major/obvious changes since installing SP1  although it does feel like it boots a fraction quicker and the whole system itself just feels a bit “crisper”.

Its not the major change that SP2 was to XP and this is what basically  Microsoft have been saying all along. Most of the “you need service pack 1 ” talk has been generated by the media and by “loud” users who despite actually not using Vista apparently are experts.

I didn’t have any major issues with Vista beforehand and SP1 at this stage certainly hasn’t changed that.

The whole Windows Vista SP1 Prerequisite KB937287 issue that has  shown up recently just made me laugh. The Vista team wont release SP1 to the public because of issues with “some” drivers yet the they release a update via Windows Update that appears to have caused the type of problem they are trying to avoid by releasing SP1. Talk about shooting yourself in the foot. The whole Vista release has basically been a circus and has probably contributed more to the undeserved bad rap Vista has.
