No Vista SP1 this year - Page 3

post #21 of 58
Funny how only a few months earlier, Microsoft was claiming that there will never be a "Service Pack" for Vista as there was previously for XP, just a bunch of small fixes.

I guess Vista didn't turn out to be as inbreechable as they hoped for it to be.

I bet if MS released the patch right away you would be whining about how buggy it was...

Can we drop the anti-MS crap?
I'll second that.....bleh If Vista is running fine (as I've heard from several people) then it doesn't require a SP. It's as simple as that!

I didn't think microsoft would release a service pack for windows vista this early, I mean the OS isn't even half a year old. Good thing vista is a much safer operating system to use than xp (at least for now rofl)

I think it more have to do with the perceived idea that many will not move to Vista until SP1.

This is GOOD NEWS. They are taking their time to make a GOOD Service Pack.

Tbh Vista is fine and dosent need anything done to it apart from optimising that just takes time they did it with XP not long until Vista is the same speed or faster imo

Vista is fine. UAC is annoying and is there to protect users from themselves as Pauldovi said. It won't stop a virus or trojan lol.

That's fine with me. I don't intend to upgrade for a good while anyway, so sometime in 2008 is just fine .

What I really would like is not some doofy work-a-day patching... give me some more compatible drivers!!! and dont install the default m$ ones and tell me they are good enough, BAD VISTA, BAD! Took me a few minutes to figure out that I couldnt run aero only because I was using the 'generic video driver' it never had a yellow exclamation mark on the device manager so I just assumed it was fine.

I then had to go find the manufacturer's chipset AND video drvs... and do NOT get me started on the onboard HD audio -- all this from a mobo that had one hundred little 'compatible with vista' stickers all over it. I know its god damn compatible, I can make any piece of hardware work with windows, thats the god damn beauty of this idiot-proof OS.

Still no support for my USB wifi adapter or a few other little random goodies I have laying around. Vista works great at the office with standard hardware and BS no-frills work (love the new office onenote 2007 though) - but for my heavily modified home overclocked rig, its just NOT the right OS yet. Maybe once 64bit drivers get better and more 64bit apps are released... ya know?

The OS is great guys, but its only great if its for you - if you like tonnes of shinies and a boatload of options you will never see - thats great. Or how about if you are an idiot and you try to break things by messing with the system options... well vista will tell you when you are doing something possibly stupid.

In conclusion, Vista is typically for those people that are PC-illiterate and for those people that are also easily amused by teh shinies.
LOL. Funny .

Maybe. I certainly wont be moving to Vista until at least SP1 .

Hopefully you're right. In my experience all of MS's GUI based OSs are less-than-perfect to start and improve well with service packs. XP is much improved (imo) now, than before it got it's first service pack.

.
.

I'm happy for other's to buy into Vista right away really. I'm pleased so many have. It's these people who will be writing the "how to" guides online and finding work-arounds to all the annoying, unnecessarily resource-hogging and inconvenient elements that are (in my experience) almost always included in an MS OS. These people will be sharing their experiences online for all of us who waited to make use of when we finally upgrade. Not only that, but those of us who wait, will find much greater driver, software and hardware compatibility when we finally upgrade as well. We will have to put up with far less of the hassles that some of those people who upgraded right-away have had to experience.

Atm, Vista (Retail Home Premium) costs about as much as an 8800GTS 320MB in the UK, online. I know exactly which I'll be buying this year and which I'll be waiting for until '08. Vista will probably be a less expensive, more refined, more stable OS then anyway .
