On Tuesday Microsoft opened the door on Windows Vista SP1. This is a landmark occasion because it marks a transition from where only a select few have had access to the software to where "everyone" can get access to this major system update. After watching the public release of more service packs than I can remember I've come to expect a certain level of collateral damage. But so far the damage is quite limited.I've been keeping my eye on a number of blog posts and forum posts which covered the release of SP1 and so far the number of people claiming to have had problems is very small indeed. As the number of home users picking up this update increase I do still expect to see more people affected, and I guess it'll be interesting to see what happens over the weekend.
Problems I'm seeing so far include:
You can read what I think it a pretty good cross-section of feedback on the Windows Vista Team blog.
However, the real test for SP1 will be when it's pushed via Windows Update/Automatic Update. How things pan out once SP1 is actively pushed to Vista users should be interesting to see.
If you're still waiting to carry out the update, my advice remains the same - hope for the best but plan for the worst.
Thoughts? Anyone here upgraded? If so, how did it go and what are your feelings about the update?
