Default Vista service pack 1

Nothing noticeable unless you do some heavy number crunching or gaming. Some people lose performance, some gain.

I gained quite a bit of performance last night...by deleting vista and reinstalling XP.

Microsoft is not uploading SP1 to Windows Updates until later this month, but you can still go to their website to download it. Just an FYI.

It is on Windows update for 32bit, I'm not sure about 64 bit.
There are some prerequisite updates that must be installed before it will show up.
