Microsoft Windows Vista SP1- Is it faster?

February 15th, 2008 midowo Posted in Software, Windows Vista 2 Comments »

VistaSp1We are waiting for this package for a long time now,because experts say us that Vista in its first appearance wasn’t ready and that’s why it’s functionality in some aspects weren’t as good as we expected. IS this problem solved in this first SP1?

Microsoft promise us that Windows Vista Sp1 Will be Faster and a lot of mistakes will be repaired. We will try to solve this question offering you a view in the CNET accomplished first SP1 test’s.

I have to tell that CNET results aren’t reasonable because in some aspect’s the operations are faster but in other they aren’t.

In this Service package are included a lot of new driver versions, what are noticeably upgraded the fastness of them, but a lot of theme where available before to those who had the automatic upgrades turned ON. Microsoft have invested a lot of finance’s in this Project.

In tests the biggest high-speed increasing where noticed in file copying – the speed have increased about 40 to 50 %. Interesting is that copying to USB speed is reduced , but generally the speed is increased.  Microsoft Promise us that they will fix this problem with USB in short time.

Overall conclusion is that Almost none of us will be able to feel the difference between the Original Vista and the SP1, because only the file copying speed is increased. But a lot of mistakes have been fixed.

And often people are gripes about windows vista price. But most part of people likes windows vista graphic interface. But now there is made Linux distributive that looks like windows vista – Vixta.

Like all Linux distributives Vixta is also for free. And this operational system doesn’t need so good computer as windows vista need.

vixta

This Linux distributive is supported by Sourceforge that is home for many opensource softwares. Vixta is comparatively small project. There is very little information about Linux Vixta but we now that it will be built on fedora base.

Looks that Linux Vixta author is A. Paulo Santos because he in forums talked about this the most active and he announced about appearance of Linux Vixta 094 version.

The homepage of Linux Vixta project informs that 095 version will be soon released. The new version target is to make free accessible, friendly for users, visually attractive, easy configurable and widespread distributive.
