Windows 7: SP2 RC for Vista and Server 2008 goes public

That's odd, MS usually releases SP's that are a Cumulative Rollup package that incorporates all patch releases up to that date. Wonder why they didn't go that route with Vista's SP2?

When SP2 is released, I'm upgrading all my main machines to it. My test machine (this laptop) will still be used with Windows 7 builds.

As much as I love Windows 7, I would still like to see Vista become what it should have been and personally I have always liked Vista and without it we would not be where we are now, without Vista Windows 7 could not have been and Windows 7 would have been looked down upon just as Vista was because it was so different and unique, for me Vista is a very young OS and still has long way to go before maturity.

Just because it was misunderstood and feared doesn't mean it should not have a place as one of the great OS's that changed the way we look at windows and our expectations. If you want to blame anyone for Vista's failure, blame all the software companies that did not want to support it.

im all with ya on that 1, ive always liked vista until i got hold of beta7000, i didnt care what ppl said about vista, i had it running like a charm (still do on my old acer travelmate) its a shame they couldnt just do an update that has all the windows 7 features for vista (that would be a big d/l i imagine) but then you wouldnt need a new o/s at all. and they sure did take their time creating the vista drivers, i was on a holiday shopping in hongkong wondering what all these vista logo's were at the "Golden centre" just before australia had even heard about vista. i was one of these ppl that wernt shocked about the new o/s, but baffled of how far they had come compared to the plain XP, then i had all the fun of customizing and tinkering, windows 7 just doesnt have that same 'new' feel, but a more impressive upgrade.

I'm beta testing this SP2 release on Vista Business which is working just fine.

All im saying is that on my low end machines the only advantage of running this os is better driver support at present, on my laptop it feels very bloated compared to windows 7, though you may not notice this with your machines as they have better cpu/ram than me.

Bear in mind i have not really used vista before, i only decided to try it when the sp2 came out. So my comments are a bit more general and not just regarding the service pack but whole os.

Im using the ultimate version but prehaps should of gone for home premium.

mine running vista ult 32bit sp1 is a acer travelmate 2140, 1.73ghz celeron, 2gb 667 ram, onboard intel graphics accelerator, audio, wifi, 50gb ata hdd, cdrw dvd rom combo.

is yours slower specs than that? cos mine runs pretty smooth apart from the slow boot time. plus it has some bad sectors on the drive, but i dont see any problems.
