Performance Results Mixed with Vista Service Pack 1

Microsoft's newly released Service Pack 1 may solve some of the performance glitches that have annoyed Windows Vista users and discouraged others from adopting the OS, but it doesn't appear from our initial tests to be a panacea.

In the first tests of the service pack, file copying, one of the main performance-related complaints from Vista users, was significantly faster. But other tests showed little improvement and in two tests, PC world experience was actually a little better without the service pack installed than with it.

I dont know if this would help. The already bloated o/s which takes 15+gb of hard drive and now we install the sp on it. OUt of my 2GB ram, almost half of it is taken up after a clean boot. I would suggest they cut down on the o/s size remove most of the annoying overly protective features sine most people are using xp and that does not have these "noob" features.

Correct me if I'm wrong, but didn't XP only become a significantly better OS after SP2? Granted XP was more warmly received than Vista when it came out but still...
