Default Service pack 2 for vista released today

Service pack 2 was released today and can be obtained here

http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/d...DisplayLang=en

I just installed it and man is my system ever snappy quick now compared to before. I highly recommend everyone get this without waiting for it tom come over windows update.

Side note: this messes your computer if you patched vista to get more themes. I am not sure if there is a new crack to get this working yet.

Well for me it feels faster with opening programs and starting up. maybe it's just something with my computer.

Yeah it is good it installed quick I had my laptop all set up just so I could keep working but didn't even really need to since it installed in roughly 20 min

I have been running it for 3-4 weeks (was released earlier to volume license partners) and so far it seems great. Windows works right and even snappier.
