The beta testing of service pack 2 for Windows Vista is about to end and SP2 will soon be released for download. Unlike service packs for previous Windows client operating systems SP2 is not cumulative which means that you will have to install service pack 1 before you can apply service pack 2.

So if you for some odd reason still aren’t running service pack 1 on your Windows Vista machines now is the time to install it to make sure you are ready for service pack 2.
