"...there is a very noticeable performance increase. It is obvious that since Microsoft released Vista to manufacturing, it has been optimising the code ever since."

Comment from a reader: "No question Windows Vista was a beta when released in January." :lol:

This article follows on from Chris Keall's post:

Interrrresting - also from the article

[Quote] Amusingly, the build of SP1 we saw (which in this beta comes fully integrated into a 3.2GB Vista install DVD, rather than as a standalone update) still has Microsoft's internal network shares.[End]

Just how HUGE will this SP1 be ?:eek:

I downloaded the unofficial Vista SP1 and its 148mb, of course this won't be the final size and it excludes the fixes for downloads and copy paste, also the performance one. These are only about 14 or 15mb and you can download them directly from Microsoft.

Don't know if this has been posted before, however microsoft have now released a couple of Vista updates.

One (think it is KB938979) is designed to improve the speed of machines, with other features as well, however it made a vast difference to this Acer Aspire 5100 series laptop.

You need to be careful though, as there are two KB938979 files listed, one for 64 bit machines and a separate one for 32's.

If U get it wrong, an error message will display.

Available from the normal M/soft update site.
