    ===================

    938979 Vista Performance and Reliability Pack

    This update resolves a number of individual issues which may be affecting some computers running Windows Vista. These issues have been reported by customers using the Error Reporting service, product support, or other means. Installing this update will improve the performance and responsiveness for some scenarios and improves reliability of Windows Vista in a variety of scenarios. Some examples of the improvements contained in this update are:
    Improves performance in resuming back to the desktop from the Photo and Windows Energy screensaver.
    Resolves an issue where some secured web pages using advanced security technologies may not get displayed in Internet Explorer on Windows Vista.
    Resolves an issue where a shared printer may not get installed if the printer is connected to a Windows XP or Windows Server 2003 system and User Access Control is disabled on the Vista client.
    Resolves an issue where creating AVI files on Vista may get corrupted.
    Improves the performance in calculating the ‘estimated time remaining’ when copying/moving large files.
    Improves performance in bringing up Login Screen after resuming from Hibernate.
    Resolves an issue where synchronization of offline files to a server can get corrupted.
    Resolves a compatibility issue with RAW images created by Canon EOS 1D/1DS Digital SLR Camera which can lead to data loss. This only affects RAW images created by these two specific camera models.
    Resolves an issue where a computer can lose its default Gateway address when resuming from sleep mode.
    Improves the performance when copying or moving entire directories containing large amounts of data or files.
    Improves the performance of Vista’s Memory Manager in specific customer scenarios and prevents some issues which may lead to memory corruption.

    938194 Vista Compatibility and Reliability Pack

    This update resolves a number of individual issues which may be affecting some computers running Windows Vista. These issues have been reported by customers using the Error Reporting service, product support, or other means. Installing this update will improve the reliability and hardware compatibility of Windows Vista in a variety of scenarios. Some examples of the improvements contained in this update are:
    Improved reliability and compatibility of Vista when used with newer graphics cards in several specific scenarios and configurations.
    Improved reliability when working with external displays on a laptop.
    Increased compatibility with many video drivers.
    Improved visual appearance of games with high intensity graphics.
    Improved quality of playback for HD-DVD and Blue-Ray disks on large monitors.
    Improved reliability for Internet Explorer when some third party toolbars are installed on Vista.
    Improved Vista reliability in networking configuration scenarios.
    Improved the reliability of Windows Calendar in Vista.
    Improved reliability of systems that were upgraded from XP to Vista.
    Increased compatibility with many printer drivers.
    Increased reliability and performance of Vista when entering sleep and resuming from sleep.
    Nice, hopefully those'll sort out the low performance in games. Personally I've only tried one game in Vista, and it was quite terrible performance compared to XP.

    In all seriousness, this does seem to address a lot of the issues that were making me want to throw Vista out of the window. Might give it another shot, against my better judgement.
    Well it seems ok to me.
    XP had many patches aswell. THe same as all OS's

    Maybe I might Install it before Sp1. I'll wait till these are released and asses the fallout. If they're good then I think I'll just go for it.

    It's not here yet, and when it does arrive (or rather the SDK) it's going to be beta.
