Microsoft has announced the public release of Windows Vista and Server 2008 SP2. I don’t know about you but I’m skipping SP2 on all my machines and going straight to Win 7 on ALL my PCs (see this blog).
Here is the blurb from TechNet this AM:
Windows Vista Service Pack 2 and Windows Server 2008 Service Pack 2 Available for Download
Service Pack 2, the latest service pack for both Windows Server 2008 and Windows Vista, is now available for public download. SP2 supports new types of hardware and emerging hardware standards, includes all of the updates that have been delivered since SP1, and simplifies deployment for consumers, developers, and IT professionals. For more details, see the TechNet page for Service Pack 2 for Windows Server 2008 and Windows Vista.
Microsoft also announced that within 30 days of the May 11 release of Windows Server 2008 RC revealed at Tech·Ed, the System Center Virtual Machine Manager 2008 R2 Release Candidate would be available. VMM 2008 R2 RC builds on the new platform enhancements in Windows Server 2008 R2 such as Live Migration, Clustered Shared Volumes (CSV), hot addition and removal of storage, network optimization, and remote desktop services (RDS).
