'[OT] Vista SP2'

Just installed Vista SP2 based on the prompt. It is a huge download
but the installation process is quite smooth and so far I did not
notice any differences yet.

Any one updated to SP2 here?

Did so since it was SP2 RC.  Although I am not against Vista, I have
to admit that all the machine that I have with Vista are set up in
dual boot mode with XP as the other OS. I am not logging in to Vista
unless I really have to, for example to carry out testing of our
latest in-house tool/software/driver etc.

Best regards,

You can download it once as 570MB file if your language is among those
5; or wait till "all languages" pack is available.

I've found Vista's defender is quite efficient when updated regularily.

I upgraded to TinyXP triple-booting with Arch Linux and QNX Neutrino.

Hmm, my download is smaller. I use this file.
Windows6.0-KB948465-X86.exe -- 356,671 KB.
I am using English version of Vista 32bit.
Even though the file is huge, but the download speed from
Microsoft site is very fast here in Singapore.

One is just the patches, the other is basically a complete  Vista
installation package including languages. The 540MB one can be
slipstreamed with a Vista install DVD  and reburnt as Vista with SP3,
the other you can't.

I've heard of problems with installing over firewalls and A/V
software, but I've ditched Vista much more impressed with W7, except
they no longer have the flashing network tray icon :(

I see. My Acer desktop does not even come with a Vista install
DVD, only a recover partition. I needed to make the recovery
DVDs myself.

No problems here with AVG Free. As for Windows 7, that
is pre-release version and I do not want to run things like that.
But my next PC will probably be one with release version of
Windows 7.

You need to have a license certificate for your OEM Vista. Mine is
placed on the Vista DVD box.

The certificate is on the machine. That is typical for all the
major vendors.

FWIW AFAIR placing the COA sticker on the PC concerned is a condition of the
licence for uSoft O/S products.

I think this is only true for OEM licensed products that were bought
with OEM hardware. Retail software comes with its own sticker that AFAIK
doesn't have to be on the system.

Also according to the doc it looks like it does not have to be on PC
in case of a small manufacturer.
They used "the COA is typically affixed" phrase.

For Windows software that comes pre-installed by a small
manufacturer (also known as a System Builder) on a computer,
the COA is typically affixed to the body of the computer.
