    Vista Service Pack 2

    I have downloaded and installed portions of Service Pack 2 for Vista, which
    brought me to Build6002. Does anyone have info as to when one can expect the
    final of this one.

    That download consists of up to 388 MB's and with dial-up will take close to
    15 hours to complete. It also still is an RC version.
    Wouldn't it be better to wait for the official update?
    I should think so,

    Harry.

    Whatever date is bandied around on the web will probably be the wrong one.
    Microsoft have already changed the release schedule once so they can easily
    do it again. All that can be said with confidence is 'it will be released
    when it is ready.'
