Another dude who's got zero idea on the reputation of zukona. Obviously a late-comer. Ha,ha..
Alright, so this zukona has a good reputation from past experience. I accept that. But it still doesn't change my natural inclination to be skeptical and make me think that there is a first time for everything.

And with respect to any code, spyware, malware or other...just because it may have never wreaked havoc with anybody...doesn't necessarily mean that it's simply not there. I mean, people get paranoid about the WAT that Microsoft puts there...but might be willing to run a leaked build of something else....it just makes me wonder.

It's just something that some of us aren't willing to do. I'll just wait for those willing to do it to share their experiences about what has changed, what works well and what doesn't.

Those who choose to be guinea pigs are firm believers, i think, of the adage - "no guts, no glory".

Hi all

I think Zukona etc. provided a valuable service during the pre RTM builds that I'm sure were downloaded by many many people without any problems whatsover.

However I have a slightly different take on this now.

1) If you are using a RELEASED purchased (or legally licensed such as Technet etc) version of W7 then you have to be careful "sourcing" upgrades from non official sources. -- When the product was PRE release the use of the "wild" was perhaps the only way for "normal" people to get hold of various builds - and the product wasn't in retail. Now it's in retail the legal implications are a bit different.

2) If you are using W7 in a Production or Real work environment then upgrading from "un-official sources" most definitely isn't a good idea.

3) If your W7 installation isn't broken why fix it -- just wait for the official SP1 - it won't be long in appearing in any case.

Cheers
jimbo

Service packs are just a group of updates and patches that have been released since the the original launch, so if you already get updates the service pack won't be necessary.

Most times they also include piracy foiler's, so if your system isn't lagit the service pack will reset any fraud to your MS build.

also theme patches get reset. so none of your custom themes will work.. then you have to wait for someone to come out with a rew theme patcher.

So unless your installing the service pack on a fresh install of windows then I wouldn't install it.
