I've been using the beta/RC Vista SP2 for about a week now with no problems.

MS claims it frees up some memory from various places, increased performance, and some other stuff. Make sure your backups are current and go for it.

That's what they always say.

I'd skip it, wait a few weeks, se what happens to the poor suckers who go first. Like me... I can't stop that from being installed :( Unless I format my laptop and use XP, which I am strongly considering. Vista is a giant PITA.

It's a much needed upgrade and it's free. Another plus is that Vista will recognize all 4GB of RAM if you have 4GB.

Vista SP2 has been around for well over a month now, Microsoft just "took their time" putting it on Automatic Updates. I've been running SP2 x64 since it was leaked, and it's fine.

What do you mean? My Vista recognizes the 4GB's that are in my system. I am running 64bit. Are saying that a 32bit system will now show 4GB's?

Step 1. Open an elevated command prompt. To do this, click Start, click All Programs, click Accessories, right-click Command Prompt.

Step 2. then click Run as administrator. If you are prompted for an administrator password or for a confirmation, type the password, or click Allow.

Step 3. Type the following command, and then press ENTER: sfc /scannow.
Step 4. Disconnect all the external devices from the computer that are not required for starting Windows.

Step 5. Download Standalone version of Windows Vista Service Pack 2 from the following link : http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/...4a-55ec-4972-a0d7-b1a6fedf51a7&displaylang=en

Vista sucks. I bought this computer when you could still get XP, and I really wish I had not opted for Vista.
