Windows Vista SP2 Beta available for download

A trial version of Windows Vista Service Pack 2 is now available for free download from Microsoft’s TechNet Web site.”For those of you who choose to test this service pack, we encourage you to install the beta as soon as you can; your feedback will help us to ship a solid and stable service pack for Windows Vista,” product manager Mike Nash wrote on his blog. Windows Vista SP2 will include security and performance updates issued since Microsoft released Vista SP1 in March. It also includes “support for new types of hardware and emerging standards that will grow in importance in the coming months,” said Nash.

Among other things, Vista SP2 will add support for the latest Bluetooth specification and Blu-ray high-definition media encoding. It also adds Microsoft’s Windows Connect Now Wi-Fi configuration tool. As for the forthcoming Windows 7, another Microsoft blog post states that programmers who attend an MSDN Developer Conference in January will be given a DVD containing the first beta version of the operating system.Microsoft for the first time unveiled Windows 7 features at its Los Angeles Professional Developers Conference in October and appears anxious to release the OS as soon as possible.

    How many people still use XP?

    As usual, I switched back and fourth from XP to vista for about a year and a half after its release (I did this for over 2 years when moving from windows 2000 to XP!), I am now fairly happy with vista. But it is working fine at the moment so will probably leave this beta alone

    Hey Martin, is your m0ther grabbing it? It would be of a great assist to the Scene community having her uploading those home made p0rn videos especially with the latest “Bluetooth specification and Blu-ray high-definition media encoding.”

    I don’t know why everyone think Vista sucks, Vista is so far the only OS that I haven’t had one single problem with. Which I think is great. Looks nice too ;D

    Like 08 I still use dual boot xp and vista ultimate, vista is great for gaming, but I have had to format the Vista HD a few times, specialy a few weeks ago when Microsoft issued some updates it blue screened it, lucky i keep all my stuff on a media vault so i realy only use the HDs in the computer as divices to work on with only the operating systems on it. with Vista I hate all the questions that it keeps asking you when you have asked it to do something in the first place, I bet it will not be long that they adopt the MLK procedure with the ops systems like they do now with office and that sucks. Sorry for being long winded but MS never learn by their mistakes (who agrees with me) cant wait for the forum RLSLOG bring it on….

    I’m surprised so many people here use Vista. Its widely aknowledged throughout the world that its a big pile of dog poo, yet the fanboys still crow about how good it is, I thought the rls users knew things… obviously not

  21. Shuko
    December 6th, 2008 | 13:18

    As usual, most people who are bashing Vista havent even used it. Its just how this stuff goes on the net. Ive used 64bit Vista about a year and its not really as bad as people make it sound. Everything worked etc and it isnt slow (E6600 & 4GB), however XP is faster on some things. Currently Im using a MicroXP that only takes 70-80mb memory, this is quick. ;)

    December 6th, 2008 | 13:33

    Who is sick of the fan boys saying the only ones who hate Vista have a crappy machine or never used it. WRONG. We hate it because it is Windows ME reincarnated. Windows 7 will be XP reincarnated so we might like it after awhile and then love it. But Vista sorry to say will fade into memory.

    @almera gti… (what a crappy car)

    “I hate all the questions that it keeps asking you when you have asked it to do something in the first place”

    You can actually shut that off very easy control panel user accounts and then shut off USER ACCOUNT CONTROL.

    The first thing i did was a clean install vista ultimate 32bit, turn off al the control’s and then some..

    and never had to reinstall vista ever again so that’s a plus. No blue screen, no crashes, nothing! Plus its beter looking then xp by far and that is important to some people.

    @22 Vista works really well for some people, its as simple as that, I don’t think Vista fanboys exist lol. I’ve been using it since SP1 and its been really stable, I’ve not had any BSODs or anything like that. I’ll probably use Windows 7 but again I’ll wait until the first service pack before using it.

    @24 “the one”

    kid, dont spread nonsense.
    i know that this is not your “knowledge” but you have copied this _opinion_ off the web. if you look what they have changed in vista since xp (e.g. WPF, UAC, TCP/IP stack rewrite) then you should agree that this are major changes, hence the major version jump from 5.1 to 6.0. then go look on the interwebs what windows 7 will change and you see it’s mostly only GUI changes, like moving gadgets from the sidebar to the desktop, generally simplifying the UI, probably ribbons and the like. and to satisfy stupid stinking kids like you that gave vista that bad reputation by giving the OS a new name. (note that the lack of success of vista in the corporate world has other reasons namely that there simply was not enough new _buissness_ relevant features in vista to justify IT personnel training costs).
    wxp to w2k (ask your dad what that was) is about the same as w7 to vista will be.
    is it so hard to think for yourself and do a little research instead of copying halftruth from little stinking kids? pfff winME… as if your dad had let you use his computer in that times. you know nothing.

    It’s always funny to see that some people who like saying that Vista is a purely crappy system that eats your ressources like a pig are the same that are downloading games like GTA 4 that needs a pc build by the NASA in order to play with medium settings.

    Got a dual boot and everything is ok.

    Look, VISTA SUCKS and you all know it. Secure firewall drivers do not exist in Vista, and nobody’s create them.

    Why did I give up on Vista? Because Microsoft did! I reloaded XP onto my system the day after they announced the upcoming arrival of their new operating system.

    VISTA = MICROSOFT 2000

    as always u say vista sucks, but if could buy a brain at ebay and get it in and know how to make the best config out of it it works even better then xp there is alot of options u can disable if u even know how to get in to dos as don’t much of those vista haters commonly don’t know

  37. ZV
    December 6th, 2008 | 16:54

    Never had a problem with Vista, except for being able to mirror the HD under it. It does take a monster proc and graphics card to run good though.

    December 6th, 2008 | 16:57

    The only thing i hate about vista x64 is its file transfer speeds.

    they are the only thing that sucks on vista compaired to xp

    as for the rest its peachy, had this same vista x64 os installed for over a year and half and no reinstalls

    works like a charm and if you only go to secure sites that you know about and have a clear head at what sites you view then you will never get another virus at all.

    i follow this method and have never ever had any problems.

    but i sure am waiting for windows 7 as a beta tester it sure is looking suprizingly great and the performance is just great.

    cant wait for alpha – beta1 release.

    December 6th, 2008 | 17:05

    first of all ,vista had its teething problems just like xp but with the release of sp1 what adressed known problems it has sorted out many of the anoying bugs . although i would wait a little longer before trying the sp2 beta as still in development stage and download and install at your own risk but you never know might be just fine.

  40. Erazare
    December 6th, 2008 | 19:02

    been running sp2 for a little over a week now its pretty solid

    i still hate vista though, would like hyper-vista (seven) but no one seems to want to leak 6933 and 6801 is just not right

  41. Erazare
    December 6th, 2008 | 19:09

    actually i have only had one BSOD in Sp1 and that was due to some glitch with vmware trying to load windows 7 6801… otherwise i have to say it is rather stable. I still prefer xp sp3 though, it is much less of a resource hog no matter what jerkoff up above says

    and for the record I ran gtaiv in sp2 with a 128mb ati x1400 and it runs fairly well, if u are going to flame someone get your IT training because you obviously cant teach yourself like those of us who were hacking in win 3.0 back when YOUR daddy wouldnt let u touch his puter

    @Vista:

    “You can actually shut that off very easy control panel user accounts and then shut off USER ACCOUNT CONTROL.”

    Then all you have is a glorified WinXP.

    To those who said set up vista right and you’ll never get another virus – thats what ive been like with XP – no viruses.

    The only good thing i see about vista is DX10 and even then it isn’t all worth it.

    I rarely get a BSOD with XP x64, I personally hate vista due to no drivers for pretty much anything. SP1 doesn’t make vista better. I still haven’t bothered with SP3 as i see no point.

    And before anyone says about my computer

    AMD Athlon 64 X2 Dual Core 4800+ 2.5GHz

    @46

    What you mean no drivers for Vista?
    Afaik there is NO drivers that Vista doesnt have that XP does.
    Specially Vista x64 vs XP x64.

    There was a reason for Microsoft abandoning XP x64 and going directly on the Vista x64 support.
    (No, there is no XP x64 support. Only x86.)

    And that computer werent much to brag about.
    a VERY old processor that they stopped selling a few years ago. and 8gb of memory with those specs?
    Waste!

  45. lies
    December 6th, 2008 | 23:21

    @ 46, if only the 9600gt had 1gb of memory lol

    those cards only go up to 512mb.

    taken from nvidia website:

    Memory Specs:
    Memory Clock (MHz) 800 (GDDR3) and 500 (DDR2) MHz
    Standard Memory Config 256/512 MB
    Memory Interface Width 128-bit
    Memory Bandwidth (GB/sec) 25.6 (GDDR3) and 16.0 (DDR2

    its funny how people argue over vista, if you dont like it why bother to post anything about it, or even check this sp2 link????? you are all fanboys

    ubuntu linux ftw

    Only newbie hates vista. They just dont know how to do workarounds to run vista the way they like it and perhaps they dont have the right hardwares to run vista smoothly.
    Thats how I see why people hates vista.

  47. Cat
    December 7th, 2008 | 02:01

    So anyone tested to see if there are any genuine performance gains and where? Does it use less memory?

    Will the offical SP2 be able to be installed on top of this?

    installed the sp2 beta yesterday and so far so good. no problem or slow down, or even better performances; but that’s because all the updates addressing the performances issues in the SP2 beta are already available through windows update.

    didn’t have much time to look more… just noticed that installing the sp2 did not break the activation crack.

    December 7th, 2008 | 19:10

    I just unpacked the win7 6956 vhd to a new partition and about to set the vistabootpro up so i can dual boot it and see what its like… anyone tried 6956 yet

  53. Nahor
    December 11th, 2008 | 19:08

    Thanks tof, good to know, cause I’ve been dying to install CS4 and it requires SP1 to be installed and my vista wont allow it. So am gonna hope to install this as a workaround.
