  2. Windows Vista SP1 in general is really just a collection of updates that
    have been released for the operating system since November 2006. There
    really is no need in waiting for SP1 to upgrade to Windows Vista, go ahead

    Vista offers nothing better than XP and has more negatives than positives.
    If you want to experiment with Vista install it as a dual boot.
    If you install Vista as an upgrade you cannot go back to XP, and you
    probably will want to.

    Well that's simply not true. You need to stop lying about Vista, which
    is something it appears you know nothing at all about.
    More of your misleading lies?
    Give it up!

    well i already am on vista and i dont feel like going back to xp. i havent
    experienced any negatives so far! it installed faster, the look and feel is
    awesome, applications load faster, search feature is kick a$$, in built
    programs are more user friendly, networking is easier, the side bar is a
    great tool, it boots way faster than xp. the only thing that i think could
    have been better was the defragmenter.

    not to mention the impoved start menu with search, ie7, wmp11 (wow!), media
    center and photo gallery.

    i certainly dont doubt the way vista defrag works and i'm sure it would be
    better than xp. but what i say is there could be a graphical representation
    on what is happening like in xp.

    SP1 was available already since Dec. , it just doesn't update automatically
    for you. Go:
    Control Panel>System and Maintenance>Windows Update

    find and install manually.

  13. Vista is poo poo they decided to remove everything that you need from the
    interface or hide it very well, but decided to put in your FACE, UAC all the
    time and nice sidebars with bad quality gadgets!

    Oh vista sucks

    Thanks for the link. I particularly appreciate the part about increasing
    the usability of my computer while defrag is running. I've tended to leave
    my computer alone in the past during the process because I was afraid that
    using it would mess something up. Also avoided hitting the pause or stop
    button for the same reason.

  16. The Service Pack 1 update is limited to testers, its not commercially
    released or even meant for production environments. The point is though,
    there is no need in waiting to deploy Vista, the same collection of updates
    you are now getting will be same ones you are getting in Vista SP1.

  17. A wise decision.. ;-)

    itunes is cool for organising music and also format conversions.
    wmp11 supports a whole lot of portable devices including my n73
