The second service pack for the Vista operating system, Vista SP2, has been made available for download by the Redmond-based software giant Microsoft and you are very well advised to get the software and install it – the only prerequisite is that you have Windows Vista SP1 installed on your machine. The standalone package and the DVD ISO that Microsoft has made available for download represent a single installer that encompasses both Vista SP2 and Windows Server 2008 SP2.

Windows Communications Manager on the Windows Client Communications Team, Brandon LeBlanc, comments: “We are pleased to announce the Release to Web (RTW) for Windows Vista and Windows Server 2008 SP2. Windows Vista and Windows Server 2008 SP2, a combined service pack for both operating systems encapsulated in a single installer, will simplify deployment, management, and support for IT Professionals. It includes support for new types of hardware and emerging hardware standards, as well as updates since SP1.”

If you do not want to download and install the SP2 yourself, then you could always turn on Automatic Updates and you will be prompted for an update in the near future. Brandon LeBlanc again: “Consumers with Windows Vista SP1 can visit the Microsoft Download Center or use Windows Update (WU) to install SP2, but my suggestion is to turn on Automatic Update (AU) and sometime during the coming months your computer will download and install SP2. Similar to previous releases, SP2 delivery over Automatic Update is a “throttled release” which will begin in June.”

According to Microsoft, the standalone package is recommended for PCs without internet access and for system administrators; the DVD ISO is recommended for fresh Windows installs, XP upgrades and new PCs. But receiving SP2 via Windows Update is the most convenient way for most home users to get the software.

Just to put things into perspective, here are some of the reasons why you should get Vista SP2 as soon as possible:
- You will get faster and more relevant searches thanks to Windows Search 4.0.
- Support for the most recent Bluetooth technology via Bluetooth 2.1 Feature Pack.
- Seamlessly connect to WiFi networks thanks to Windows Connect Now (WCN).
- exFAT file system with UTC timestamp support for correct file synchronization across various time zones.
- Vista SP2 comes with a single installer for Vista and Server 2008, meaning it will be easy to manage, deploy, and support (from an IT pro point of view).
