Vista Service Pack 1 – Installed (part 2)

I have installed SP1 for Vista on my HP laptop and “WOW” I am glad to report that so far I have noticed absolutely no difference what-so-ever.

My machines doesn’t load up faster, my network connection aren’t better, my printer still prints and my applications still applicate.

So now I am confused.

Do we say to Microsoft “Job well done – nothing $%#$%@ up” or do we say “What the heck – do we even NEED to install this service pack ?”

There are supposedly great benefits. This is from the Microsoft website:

“Microsoft continuously improves the Windows Vista operating system by providing ongoing updates while working with software and hardware vendors to help them to deliver improved compatibility, reliability and performance. Windows Vista Service Pack 1 (SP1) is another vehicle that Microsoft will use to deliver operating system improvements to customers. Windows Vista SP1 is an update to Windows Vista that, along with improvements delivered to users via these other channels, addresses feedback from our customers. In addition to previously released updates, Windows Vista SP1 will contain changes focused on addressing specific reliability and performance issues, supporting new types of hardware, and adding support for several emerging standards. Windows Vista SP1 also will continue to make it easier for IT administrators to deploy and manage Windows Vista.”

So in other words just install this anyways as it cant hurt (famous last words I take no responsibility)

I would suggest that if your current Vista is giving you any grief regarding anything, install the Service Pack and it might fix the issues and if doesn’t – wait for Service Pack 2 ????
