Was just curious if any Vista users are upgrading to SP1 released today?

Pros/Cons?

ok. let us know. I may hold off for a couple of days just to see if any users experience bugs. Especially with squeezecenter!

I've been running SP1 and squeezecenter 7.0 for a while now, no issues.

Me too. Running SP1 for a while. No problems.

Yeah, it's all worked ok for me. SqueezeCentre is up and running fine.

Took about 45 minutes to install and wasn't able to do anything on the computer during that time (so get everything done before starting!)

45 mins. Were you up-to-date before the download? the size of the download and install depends on this.

Was 45 minutes or so to run through the install, and that was after about 20 minutes to download

Yes I was up to date as I have Windows Update turned on

I should point out that the timings I am quoting were not done with a stopwatch so they could be out by a fair margin but hopefully not too much ;-)

So today I go into Windows Update and the SP1 update is gone! No longer listed as an available update. What gives?

I know I read that Microsoft wasnt making SP1 available through windows update until April. Did it appear on my PC by mistake? Is this why its gone now?

Running SP1 (after patching the registry). Still insanely frustrating to use Window Explorer, XYPlorer essential...

I read that where there are issues with drivers, MS is limiting access - so you don't have an awful time ... apparently. You can still hunt SP1 down for direct download from MS.
