Probably a lot to do with the 935280 update.

Many of those updates were critical bug/exploit fixes. So I don't see how that would contribute to the OS running any different.

Nice. Microsoft had to do what adobe refused to do. Adobe insisted that everybody who uses vista must upgrade to CS3 for compatibility, but obviously they don't now.

It does though. It was pretty nice before. Extremely snappy now. I regret giving away my XP less and less every month.
