It turns out that Microsoft has just release Service Pack 2 (SP2) for Vista. Sure we didn't notice much after the first service pack, but this is the one we have been waiting for.
I have had NO problems with the update and I have seen a noticable improvment in Vista's performance!
You can get it HERE or download it through Windows Update.
Here is the list of fixes and upgrades:
-Slow shutdowns mostly resolved (we'll see)
-Wi-Fi dissconnect probelm resolved when started from sleep mode
-Blu-ray discs recording support
-Bluetooth v2.1 supported updated
-Vista Sidebar performance improved
-Power management efficiency increased by "10%"
-Support for VIA Technologies' new 64-bit CPU
-Fixes almost "700" other nagging Vista issues! (Says Microsoft)
