download, SP2, Windows Server 2008, Windows Vista
As I mentioned in yesterday’s post, I was in Las Vegas at a conference all week. One thing about being gone like that is that E-mail tends to pile up while I’m away. It’s a long story (perhaps one for another blog post), but I usually don’t end up checking my E-mail while I am traveling.
At any rate, it’s Saturday night, and I just finished going through all of my messages from the past week. One of the messages that I missed while I was away was one from Microsoft annoiuncing that SP2 for Windows Vista and Windows Server 2008 had just been released. Microsoft decided to design the service pack so that it could be applied to either operating system, so you don’t have to download one version of the service pack for servers and another version for workstations. You can get the service pack through Windows Update, but there is also a standalone version that you can download at: https://connect.microsoft.com/Downloads/DownloadDetails.aspx?SiteID=691&DownloadID=17206&wa=wsignin1.0
