Good news bad news with Vista

The good news is that Vista SP1 is now publicly available, and that installing it (after uninstalling the SP1 beta) has removed the "Evaluation version" displayed on my desktop. I realise there were other ways to remove it, but I wasn't really interested. Why? Because fuck you, that's why.

The bad news is that the process of uninstalling the beta and installing the full version took almost an hour and a half. That's a lot of painful downtime for an update which I really only applied out of perverse interest..

* Disclaimer - I only run Vista on my work desktop. I'd never use it at home.

    Hehe, not bitter at all.

    So how are you finding sp1. I'm avoiding it at the moment.

    Not finding much of a difference with SP1 installed. I installed the beta with hopes that it might improve a few things, and didn't notice anything - then, I installed the final version only to remove the "evaluation" issues casued by the beta!

    At least it didn't break anything for me though - seems I should be thankful for that ;)
