Vista and Windows Server Pack It On

This week, Service Pack 2 for Vista and Windows Server 2008 made it to broad release. One can choose a full download as long as your network or machine won't choke on the 300MB-600MB beast. You can also opt for a tidy 43MB download through Automatic Update.

There are a few neat features snuck into the SP, including better Wi-Fi and search. But the real aim of SPs has always performance, compatibility and stability.
