Plus the annoying "Evaluation Copy" on the desktop. So, I too uninstalled the beta and will wait for the final build.

The only problem is that Windows keeps trying to install an Outlook 2007 update but it keeps failing.

there's vulnerabilities in everything.

and this

"927544

FIX: You cannot create an AVI file that is larger than approximately 512 GB, and you cannot play back an AVI file that is larger than approximately 800 GB by using DirectX"


So much for DirectX improvements. Still I somehow know the fanboys are gonna scream OMG VistaSP2 my FPS skyrocketed!!111!

What do you mean? MS said this:

"Adds new capabilities to Direct X Graphic display reliability. The graphics experience has been greatly improved for users, such as gamers, running applications that require a lot of graphics processing."

but when you look at the release notes you'll only see the two minor fixes. That's what I was pointing out- MS talking out their @ss as usual when it comes to PR.

or it could be that you are not understanding it correctly

there are DirectX improvements other then those two hotfixes listed.

what 927544 and 951698 are just hotfixes that were previously available, have nothing to do with general Directx improvements.

every service pack always contains hotfixes previously released and other fixes/improvements that were not available before.
