Microsoft promises faster, better Windows Vista

Microsoft's long-awaited Windows Vista Service Pack 1 (SP1) is available for download on the web from today, and the company's Colin Erasmus promises a fix-rich release that will improve the Windows Vista experience.

i just installed it... i dont see a difference. Ive also never had a problem with vista. But then again i dont play pc games any more.

Can someone answer why there is two updates....theres one thats 60mb and the other is 400mb. Whats the diffrence? I have installed the 60mb one.

Dude what did you expect? Services Packs are some kind of magic wand, the only time an avaerage PC user might see a difference is in little things like file transfer speeds.

Then why does the average pc user complain about vista then? Is it just because everyone else is doing it? Im seriously missing out on why vista is so bad. I am obviously an average pc user.

HAHAHAHAHAHAAHA! Oh wow, that made me laugh my intestines out of my ASSHOLE in rl.

Anyway, I just finished installing this POS SP1 on my laptop (I'd love to install Debian on there, but then I'd have to give up my Blu-ray drive - no drivers - so I'm stuck with sh!tsta for now).

Made no difference, still uses 1gb/4gb of ram while IDLING.

Nazisoft also promised a reliable console.
Nazisoft also promised that the HD-DVD add-on would be a good investment.
Nazisoft also promised that HDMI was unnecessary.
Nazisoft also promised they can manage more than 640p in their biggest game. (HA HA!!! PATHETIC!)

MWAH-HA-HA-HA!!!

eagle213228d ago

Bill Gates said quote, "the 360 is the most reliable console". Peter Moore said "we aren't going to support a format that could be the next Betamax". HDMI was said by Robbie Bachslider I think. There is a lawsuit in the process for Microsoft's Halo and DMC4 720p, 1080p claims. Oh, it's a sad read. A sad read indeed...lol :)
