I read three reviews today (and saw several more headlines when I Google’d “vista sp1 review”) that talked about the first service pack for Vista being – what amounts to, I suppose – nothing to get excited about. Don’t take my word for it, read the reviews for yourself.
I just don’t get it. Now approaching what, SEVEN years in development and Vista STILL isn’t compelling? Microsoft has had over a YEAR to do SP1 and in some cases performance actually gets WORSE?
XP might not be the best thing in the world either, but at least I know what to expect from it because I’ve used it at work for so long. I was going to give Vista another shot when SP1 shipped, but now it looks like it’s just not worth the effort.
I remember when I first installed the Vista gold code. It was on a nice new machine, too. Within 28 hours I had reverted back to XP.
