Default Re: Windows Vista SP1 Download

I wish that was seen with XP originally when SP2 came out. That would have simply saved the cost of the second disk to see the service pack included rather then installing it separately. But at least that will save the cost of buying another disk just to see a working copy direct from MS there.

I imagine that will still see a retail/OEM release as well for the first time buyers once that comes out.

That's where you burn SP1 along with all of the installation files onto a separate disk to see everything combined in one sense. Everything is right on one disk rather then waiting at the support for everything to be put on there or running the installer directly from the folder it is downloaded to.
