I noticed fast file copying speed, fast resuming from hibernation and increase in frame rates in FEAR and Company Of Heroes. It has no impact on BF2.

I have yet to test the external display on HDTV.

I've noticed my startup being quicker. Probably because I don't get that Vista logo anymore when I start Vista. I'm seeing some improvements, but have to test out the CD/DVD burning and others to really test it out. Aero seems to be running smoother, not like it should. If Stardock and others can release WB6 with blur in glass on XP and have it running nice then Vista should too. I shouldn't have to get 1GB to make Aero run proper when other programs on XP are running nicely with the Aero like look. I'm going to get 1GB soon, but I don't see getting 1GB of RAM only for the GUI.

All in all I have no really bad complaints about Vista anymore. It's great for full-time use. I just have a problem with Creative and how they are slowly releasing drivers while other Audio companies are already giving their users great ones.

Also to add, some of my programs graphic effects run a lot better now :)

Example: RK Launcher's Aladdin's Lamp Effect runs a lot faster and is smoother.

ReadyBoost does seem to work better now.

Lol..

Well, I seem to be the one person that feels slowed down by these packs.

My system was lighting fast to begin with (new Dell 1520 notebook -fully loaded).. but since installing these packs I noticed slow downs when rendering in Cinema 4D, when before I never felt the effect, now aero kinda delays actions lol...

Nothing really feels faster.. HL2 still clocks at 200fps maxed out settings and CS:S still the same results as HL2.. CoD same #$%& different pile..

Cinema is still flaky with vista in fact worse, it still has it's random not-responding spazziums, resulting in a crash.

Only benfits I see is.. the prompt window that shows progress on moving, deleting, copying files is quicker to appear and disappear, but the fact I turned UAC on silent mode would probably be the reason for the random burst of speed.

I donno.. lol Microsoft disappointed me again.. Getting more tempted to put OS X on this puppy or even XP..

NO LOL I already had Vista fully installed before I heard about the 2 official releases. I removed Ubuntu because I do more web designing on Windows. Gotta get paid ;)

I need more space as well. 26GB is a bit much for an operating system I just customize and have fun on. Got more clients, needed more space, so Ubuntu had to go. I want to install Ubuntu on an old Dell Latitude C600, but the CDROM sucks and I have to upgrade it to DVD. I would have been fine if it had a USB BIOS .

No increase in frame rates in AquaMark, but file copying is indeed faster.
