Default Windows Vista SP2 Beta Next Week

Quote:
There is a post today on the Windows Vista Team Blog that says a beta of Service Pack 2 for Vista will be in the hands of testers next week. Some of the features to be included with SP2 are native Blu-ray recording in Vista, Windows Search 4.0, a Bluetooth 2.1 feature pack and more.

Following the success of Windows Vista Service Pack 1 last spring, we have been working hard on Windows Vista Service Pack 2. As a part of the development and testing process, we're going to start by providing a small group of Technology Adoption Program customers with Windows Vista SP2 Beta for evaluation next Wednesday, October 29. The final release date for Windows Vista SP2 will be based on quality. So we'll track customer and partner feedback from the beta program before setting a final date for the release.

They should have called this SP 1a or 1.5, no significant updates other than a few features - so it won't be a REQUIREMENT - who wants native burning in windows, most people disable native burning anyways considering people prefer software - cramming more into windows :) I hope VLITE will be updated to account for SP2 :)

I can't even stand the fact that they have a "Burn" icon that I can't remove!

What burn icon ? I don't have that - Mind you I used VLITE to trim the fat out of VISTA and remove some features I didn't want, CD/DVD burning engine was one of them - so I have no icon.

admittedly I use vista's default dvd burner to burn dvds, admittedly I do not like it but it is more convenient than looking for a program which fits my needs.

Never used vista built in, I have been more than happy with nero for all my burning needs.
