microsoft has sorta ruined their rep lately.

this could very well be an isolated or minimal case, but everyone is so on the lookout for ANY chance to downplay the fact Vista might become useful, that any little thing will get magnified to high hell.

this is the same if microsoft announced a 360 slim in E3. the RROD issue would have been almost been ironed out, with failure rates maybe 3-4% or lower.

but the first RROD someone gets is gonna get reamed across the interbutts and everyone will mock it like it was a white-hot needle in MS's eye.

i'm gonna give it 3-4 more days to install then see what the deal is before making judgement

Stability has always been an issue with all service packs!
No problems here... running like a dream!

... I'll wait untill I'm back from vacation (early July) before I'll install SP1.
My Vista is running fine as it is right now, but thinking of doing a clean install in the summer.
