I installed Vista SP1 on my laptop tonight. Given Microsoft’s track record, I decided to hold off on it until I’d done some research. Basically, as long as I was careful I was OK. I couldn’t really get a sense if I really needed it not. What I read made me lean towards it. I did back up my important files first. I downloaded it and got ready to install it when I realized that my laptop was dual boot with Ubuntu. So I did a quick search to see if that was safe. It was.
I haven’t checked to see if the Ubuntu side came out OK. That’s it for now.
