Windows The geek world might be all over Windows 7, and the rest of the world might be sticking to Windows XP for now, but there is also this Windows Vista operating system lingering around. Microsoft has just released the final version of the second service pack for Windows Vista and Windows Server 2008.

Pretty nice work actually! Blu-Ray recording baked in without having to install third party crap == Win.

No WGA check to download, again, good move!

This one I noticed though: “SP2 removes the limit of 10 half open outbound TCP connections. By default, SP2 has no limit on the number of half open outbound TCP connections.” Welcome to the present.

P.S. Gosh, Microsoft, ditch the damn iframes in your site.

Unfortunately this is part and parcel with their sales model where they try to split the market into niches but the problem is that many of these niches over lap and end users requirements change all the time.

Going off course I always thought that it would bet better of they had two types, Desktop and Server - then sell support as a separate package for the server line (and allow 'power users' to expand their desktop support if they want).
