Windows Vista Service Pack 1

Service Pack 1 is out for Windows Vista today. I got it through windows update as a 67MB download since I kept doing all other updates as and when they were available. Here’s the link for the complete service pack download nearly 440MB.

As usual with all the windows service packs my windows installation did slow down a bit. But not as much as Windows XP Service Pack 2 used to do to my desktop. As you people might already know I’m using a pretty good laptop now. Just out of curiosity I did a rating check for my laptop and the numbers I got were pretty impressive considering that you need just 2.0 for acceptable Aero display. I got 3.4 overall score and lowest being the Aero thing.


I’ve got 4.3 for gaming graphics. Just so that you know what I’m doing right now with all the graphics display prowess of my laptop – I’m playing Half Life 2 and Counter Strike: Source.
