Are you testing Vista SP1 RC?
« on: December 13, 2007, 03:24:03 AM »
Similar to the other thread but about Vista. Cybernetnews has a good review and download links - http://cybernetnews....al-vista-sp1-review/.

I'm installing it right now, it should be done by the time I wake up. What the review doesn't mention is which of the improvements are new and which are simply the earlier performance patches all combined. I have good hopes for it, lets see how it turns out.

I have it installed on my work PC, so far it does seem to work better.  And faster.  Too early to tell though.

Installed it last night on 2 pc's - one of them via WU and the other with the standalone installer. I don't have any benchmark programs but it does seem more responsive, but that just may be a placebo effect. File copy speed, both locally and across the network, is vastly improved.

The most imp thing I'm interested in is the ability to use a different search provider other than WDS. I'd like to use Copernic/Yahoo but they will have to provide new versions that use the SP1 search API's.
