Vista SP 2 Experience So Far

Don't expect any noticeable changes in performance with Vista SP (Service Pack) 2. Everything on my Lenovo Thinkpad X200 Tablet PC feels the same so far, but I wonder if I was plagued with some bugs that were unbeknown to me.

According to PC World, here's what you can now expect:
  • Blu-ray and improved Bluetooth support:
  • Fixes Wi-Fi issues when Vista awakes from sleep mode.
  • Improves performance of Vista desktop sidebar gadget, allowing for RSS feeds to perform better.
  • Address overall Vista system performance issues. Microsoft says SP2 repairs nearly 700 nagging Vista bugs and security updates.
  • Boosts power management efficiency by 10 percent.
  • Gives your computer support for VIA Technologies' new 64-bit CPU
  • Lets your system support exFAT, which can handle larger files and can also use UTC timestamps so you can synchronize files across different time zones.
I'm not too impressed, but I am impressed with Windows 7 and I'm eager to run that on my Thinkpad.
