Microsoft needs to stop Apple from poking fun at Vista


Microsoft
can claim anything they want about the adoption rate of Vista, but from what we continue to hear many consumers are still unhappy with the latest Windows OS from Microsoft. It seems that consumers are so unhappy, in fact, that Apple has capitalized on this with a series of commercials aimed squarely at Vista.

Microsoft has been working overtime to address many of these problems and issues with the development and release of Service Pack 1 for Vista. Microsoft has released a Release Candidate of Service Pack 1 to Beta testers.

The overall general feelings about the Beta of SP1, according to various testers that we have spoken to off the record, is positive -- except for the problems that are associated with any Beta software. In addition, Microsoft does not support build-to-build upgrades. This means that if you have an older build of the Service Pack 1 Beta installed, you will have to uninstall it before you can install the latest Beta build.

Speaking of the latest build, the RC (Release Candidate) Build, which is known as version 6001-17042-071107-1618 comes in at 434.84MB for the 32-bit version and 734.3MB for the 64-bit version. If you happen to be in the Beta you can download the SP1 RC from the Microsoft Connect Website.
