News.com reports that Microsoft is downplaying the importance of its first service pack for Vista, urging customers not to wait for it before switching to Vista.
It says the service pack offers no new features, just a compilation of patches issued to date.
CNET reported after testing SP1 that it "lacked wow." It said the enhancements to security and reliability fail to provide a compelling reason for users to wait for it and likely won't light a fire under business to adopt Vista.
Meanwhile, PCWorld.com reports, Microsoft continues to update Vista even though SP1 is in the hands of testers. It says Microsoft has rolled out four more updates to improve Vista's speed and reliability.
