1 for 1 with Vista SP1

Tuesday evening Vista SP1 started its trek onto Vista computers through the Windows Update automatic updates. SP1 is being phased in over time so you might have gotten the update today, or will get it in the coming days or weeks.

My experience was the install took 45 minutes or to fully complete, and include update steps before and after a system reboot. But surprisingly, everything went very smoothly. Everything install just fine, with no crashes, compatibility problems, lost setting or data. It just took a while to complete but so far, so good.

At this point I'd give Microsoft an A+ for the upgrade to Vista SP1.

Okay, now that I've surely jinxed this computer and it's destined to face all kinds of Vista SP1 post-upgrade problems, if you don't see a blog post from me for several days, you'll know why. :)
