Vista SP1 has finally been released. Get it while it's hot!

First Impressions:
Boot time appears slower :(
Native compression "unzips" much faster :)
Network recognition is still slow :(
Network recognition is less "buggy" / more stable :)
System is seemingly more "stable" in use. :)
Cursor freeze appears to occur less often. :)
At first glance, no new utilities / programs added. :mellow:

The update download size is not very large. (Under 100 Megs if I remember correctly.)
It took some time to install. After download, the initial "install" took just about as long as download itself.
After clicking "restart now" the computer then goes into part one of a three part update process.
Parts one and two occur before reboot - this takes a couple minutes.
After reboot, there is a long "black screen" pause.
Eventually, part 3 completes - takes another minute or so - and the system successfully restarts.

Expect at least 15 minutes from start to finish with a 10+ Mb/s download broadband connection.
(In other words, don't plan to be doing anything for a while!)

All told, I'd say definitely grab it now. (After all, it can't possibly get any worse. :P )
Happy Computer-izing!
