Thanks from me too. Because the download from mydigitallife is in the form of RapidShare and DepositFiles HTTP download links plus torrents for BT download, I would rather wait for the ISO-9660 CD Image File from M$. According to THIS official M$ blog, Windows Vista &Windows Server 2008 SP2 will be publicly available in Q2 2009 (between now and end of June).

Yes I have downloaded it and so far so good. I can see a little bit of speed improvments over SP1. SP2 also seems to run a bit smoother as well.

Vista SP2 RTM 6002.18005 is the Final release. This version was leaked from the MSDN website yesterday.

FYI - do not overlook mydigitallife description - it stated that if your Vista do not have SP1 you will need to download and install it before you can upgrade to Vista SP2. The one from M$ has no prerequisite for Vista SP1 as far as the the release notes is concerned.

Well all I know is that this download is indeed the same download that was leaked out from MSDN yesterday. The hash and time stamp matches the same file found on the MSDN website.

You could be right but I prefer to get mine from no one other than M$. The Vista on my machines are running just fine so there is no rush to get the one from BT (bittorrent).

LOL, I wouldn't even put all my trust in Microsoft considering the last time they released a Service Pack to the general public it was by mistake. Remember when they released SP1 RC onto Windows Update by mistake for a day or two a couple weeks before SP1 went final, which made the people that downloaded it from Windows Update thought that they were getting the final version when instead they were getting the RC version still.

OK, I went for it (on a second machine) & it installed happily - took about 45 minutes & now shows as Service Pack 2 so appears all well & good.......


Think I'll leave the main machine until the disk comes out.... ;-) .

I am waiting for SP2 final but I have already installed SP2 RC some time ago.

I am not sure but Windows boots quicker with SP2 RC than without it. The scrolling bar was scrolling about 26 times before SP2 RC. Now it scrolls only 12 times.

Has anyone else noticed that with RC SP2 or final SP2 ?

Cobra_R,

My badness I made a mistake when I said Vista SP2 from M$ does not have any prerequisites. In reality there are two prerequisites for installing SP2:

1. Windows Vista must have Service Pack 1 installed.

2. Users updating through Windows Update/WSUS must install an update to the servicing stack (described in knowledge base article 955430) that handles installation and removal of software updates, language packs, and optional Windows features. This update is necessary to successfully install and uninstall the service pack;

LINK to read the rest of M$ Notable Changes in Vista SP2 posted at M$ Technet.

Sorry about that :-)

After installing SP2 I then got some more updates for Office 2007 - I guess there's a connection?

No it's more of a coincidence than connection. Yesterday M$ also released 2007 Office Suite SP2.
