Items of interest.interest

1. It is becoming almost impossible to buy a new PC without Windows Vista installed
2. There is an estimated 1.1 Billion people online (of that amount about 300 Million have high-speed access)
(as reported by China overtaking US for fast internet access as Africa gets left behind)

From
Code:
SoftwareMedia.com  (semi spam site so didn't make active link)


Quote:
The first update to Microsoft Windows Vista will arrive in the first quarter of 2008 in the form of Service Pack 1. The update is mostly a collection of existing fixes and tweaks for improving stability and reliability; it’s not a delivery with a lot of features. There will be a few minor enhancements, though, like the ability to encrypt multiple hard drive partitions using Vista’s BitLocker feature. Support for exFAT, a file format for removable storage and for EFI (extensible firmware interface) will also be added. The update is expected to be a hefty 1GB download and will require 7GB of free hard drive space to install, though much of that will be returned to the user after installation.


So let's see... if I'm not one of the 300 million users with high-speed access, but I'm so tired of my new Vista PC running slow and the SP1 promises to fix it, how long will it take me to download 1GB ?

Well according to this calculator MARTINDALE'S FILE DOWNLOAD TIME CALCULATOR
it will take [1 DAY, 14 HOURS, 45 MINUTES, 8 SECONDS] basically about 39 hours to download this new Vista SP1

Sure hope your neighbor has a DVD burner and high-speed access or Microsoft ships the Vista SP1 for FREE

Microsoft always ship free Service Pack DVD's on request, providing you have a valid version of Windows (in fact a lot of the time you can get it whether you do or you dont).

Where on earth did you hear that? Looooool!

435MB - http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/detai...;DisplayLang=en - language specific would be about 400MB

66MB would be like the smallest service pack ever in the NT range since NT4 lol.

I think he's hooked up on one of the individual downloads
and not the whole thing.

But SP1 is out anyway.
