Windows Vista Update

In a previous post I had written about my displeasure of working with Windows Vista on my old Dell laptop.  After installing service pack 1 the computer has sped up noticeably.  The batteries are so old that they don’t last more than 20 minutes per charge so SP1 didn’t make a difference there, but the boot up speed and hard drive access issues have noticeably improved.  At this time I have shelved plans to go back down to Windows XP Pro.   I’m also working with a Virtual PC image of Windows Server 2008 and I’ve been quite impressed with the performance and reliability, more to come on that.
