Vista Service Pack 2

Vista Service Pack 1 solved a few problems -- but created a whole host of others! Now Microsoft is giving it another shot, and has sent a beta version of Vista SP2 to select users.

Windows 7 is built on the Vista base, and I assumed that meant it would be slow, unstable and incompatible. But Microsoft has seemingly worked wonders with this code, and Windows 7 appears in every way to be a winner. The question is: Did any of this magic rub off on Vista SP2? If so, that could be a swell OS. We'll find out by the middle of the year, SP2's expected general release date.

Am I too harsh on Vista? Set me straight at dbarney@redmondmag.com.
