New Vista Service Pack Edges Closer

Vista is still one of the great mysteries of software. Many like it and can't for the life of them understand why it gets such a bad rap. Others hate it and can't for the life of them understand why Microsoft built it in the first place.

For most Microsoft products, the first service pack stamps out the bugs and makes it usable. The first Vista SP helped, but wasn't enough to change Vista's bad reputation. Fortunately, SP2 is getting closer, as it's now in wide-scale beta.

Have any of you tried Vista SP2? If so, wadda ya think? Answers welcome at [email protected].
