Microsoft has released two updates for Windows Vista that address performance, reliability and compatibility of the operating system.  Do they fix YOUR issues?

These updates (KB938979 and KB938194) are available for immediate download of you can wait until they're pushed to system via Windows Update come next Patch Tuesday on August 14th.  I've bitten the bullet and downloaded and installed these updates to one system already and here's what I'm seeing:

  • The "estimated time remaining" but that you see when copying or moving large files has, as far as I can tell, been fixed.
  • The long delay in displaying the logon screen after resuming from hibernation is fixed.
  • I'm still seeing "visual appearance issues" when playing graphics intensive games.

Anyone else installed these updates?  If you have, are you seeing an improvement in your Vista experience?
