Vista SP1 is here.
I installed Vista from scratch today and then manually downloaded SP1 from the Windows download website. The automatic install via automatic updates isn’t being rolled out for another week or so.
So what was my experience like?
Well Vista Service Pack 1 is a rather hefty download, weighing in at nearly half a gigabyte. It downloaded within half an hour with my connection and then it was simply a matter of the install. This went smoothly taking around forty five minutes again for the full install including configurations and reboots. What else can I say? It takes away the need for multiple updates and downloads with a fresh Vista install. As for stability and other advantages? Time will tell.
What I can say is that Vista is already downloading more updates for installation…..
