For those a little more daring: Vista SP2 has now hit the net.
Yesterday Microsoft released Windows Server 2008 and Windows Vista Service Pack 2 Beta to the public. If you have been waiting for a second service pack for Windows Vista, give the new beta a shot!
You can download Service Pack 2 for Windows Vista and Server 2008 here. Note that this is the beta version and the final version of the service pack is not expected to be released until April 2009. However, if you enjoy testing new service packs or want to test it out before deploying it to your network next year, try out the beta.
Aseem over at Help Desk Geek has a great write up on this. He has included a list of updates/changes that come in SP2. Like he mentioned above, it is important to remember this is *BETA* software. It can potentially really screw up your machine. (Vista Sp1 beta I really didn’t have any problems with. WinXP SP1 I remember quite a few issues with.) It all depends on your setup, the tweaks you make, and the various applications and drivers if it is going to play nice.
If Aseem sounds familiar, that is because his wordpress plugin “Best Posts Summary” has been reviewed here before. A big fan of the plugin, so kudos to him!
