496KB to 1.1 MB of documents


The first trail of Vista service pack 1 beta is showing its face, but we expected a bit bigger download than up to 1.1 MB. Well we are only talking about PDF or XPS document.The fun part is where Microsoft claims that in July 2007 it was able to install 2.2 million drivers via driver update and a year earlier there were some 700.000 drivers around.

Vista service pack 1 will bring important things such as quality improvements that will include all previously released updates that will fix and address reliability, security and performance. The second goal is to improve the administration experience including BitLocker Drive Encryption (BDE)

The last and not the least is support for emerging standards such as Extensible Firmware Interface (EFI) and an Extended File Allocation Table (exFAT).

You can download and study the overview here.
