Looks like Vista SP1 for the 64-bit version of the OS is now available publicly on Windows Update. No sign of the 32-bit version yet, but I'm glad to get it for this particular computer.



Knowledge Base article KB936330 is available, as is the release-notes publication at TechNet.

Yep. I got Service Pack 1 for both x86 and x64 versions via my MSDN subscription. I did a clean install of Windows Vista Enterprise x64, and then applied Service Pack 1 immediately after the install completed.

I am happy to report my desktop machine is quite happy, and I am quite impressed with the performance, too. No problems to report!

This weekend, I'll do a clean install of Vista Enterprise x64 at home along with SP1. I don't expect any problems to appear.

I am VERY happy I went with x64, since everything will eventually head to 64 bit anyway.

Me, too for the most part. Once a couple apps grew up so they'd work on x64 I became much happier, for sure. Since installing SP1, no issues. Good to go.

Hmm, I am running Vista x64, but SP1 did not show up in my updates. They must have accidentally put it up early and then taken it down. Either that or they are doing a slow rollout.
