i've a preorder with a torrent site.

The only thing that bugs me now is that sp2 didn't introduce 'on the fly' audio endpoint switching as in 7.

For the rest sp2 made vista perfect as can be and see no reason anytime soon to fork out $300 for some minor gui changes.

Vista SP2 gives people a reason to save some money and stick with Vista. The reports of highly priced Windows 7 have frowned lot of vista owners. Hope SP3 will make Vista as good as XP/Win7

Well supposedly in a few weeks time the actual "retail" prices(note the emphasis there) will be announced if one article was correct. With SP2 out as intended by MS prior to 7's final release it should run even more stable with less twirks plus see a little more support with some new things enabled.

How log does it usually take to reach SP2 in other countries like italy for example?

to my mind MS needed to put out SP2 before 7's release to test 7's compatibility. By simple observation i deduced that SP2 contains major parts of 7's core improvements on the vista base, by releasing SP2 they had an enormous preinstalled testbed.

Not bad going, MS finally got it right, i.e. they marketed a product which is basically a moderate update of Vista but got it completely hyped to the skies. And that's every vendors dream, selling a hype.

In actual fact they just repackaged Vista and are going to (re)sell it for major bucks. Smart business acumen.

A scam also, but what hype isn't?

You can create your own system rescue disk. It'll suffice.
Look in your start menu--> program list

many times the Other countries have before the US does. Sample: Russian site WZOR released the torrent with MD5, SHA1, CRC32 for Windows 7 7137, before it was released in the USA. using the same trackers, and HASH markers. Some places get there "Unofficial" copies from Legit US Companies. Some times the leaked version comes from China, (version 7106 was Cn before it was Ru or En).
I also have found the UK gets many times before the USA.
