Service Pack 2 for Windows Server 2008 & Windows Vista

Microsoft has released Service Pack 2 for Windows Server 2008 & Windows Vista. The reason I haven’t put this on my blog in much detail is because I don’t use either at present. Vista is terrible & I haven’t had time to migrate to 2008 Server yet.

Way to much other important stuff going on in my work life at present to warrant the upgrade to 2008 Server. I have already tested 2008 Server and find the changes trivial, I’ve also looked at Windows 7 it’s a vast improvement on Vista.
