This isn't really a technical question but does anyone know when Vista service pack 2 is to be officailly released. Also what advantages will it have over service pack 2.

SP2 and service pack 2. are one and the same

SP2 should be an UPGRADE to XP.

From Microsoft " SP2 is an update to Windows Server 2008 and Windows Vista that addresses feedback from our customers and partners. By providing these fixes integrated into a single service pack, Microsoft provides a single high-quality update that minimizes deployment and testing complexity for customers.
In addition to all previously released updates, SP2 will contain changes focused on addressing reliability and performance issues, supporting new kinds of hardware, and adding support for several emerging standards. SP2 will also continue to make it easier for IT administrators to deploy and manage large installations of Windows Server 2008. "

There's a beta of it released now for the masochistic. The latest issue 164 March 2009 of PC Advisor states the final release date as being April. There doesn't appear to be anything ground shattering in it so I for one can wait for it.

in respone to woodchip. when i said "Also what advantages will it have over service pack 2" it should have been "Also what advantages will it have over service pack 1". typo.

Yeah i have read the latest issue but was hoping for a bit more insight into it. The information available from microsoft is vague as usual.

P.S i think that the new os (windows 7) looks quite good but i wouldn't want to upgrade to it at any time. If its based on vista then its go to be the buggiest thing ever.
