ms-vistadesktopAs expected, Microsoft has put the release candidates for Windows Vista and Server 2008 SP2 up on its website for public consumption. The service pack brings with it a number of changes and bug fixes, including support for Blu-ray disc burning and Bluetooth 2.1 as well as simpler Wi-Fi setup and Windows Search 4.0. For the server version, on the other hand, it offers the Hyper-V virtualization environment as a free fully integrated feature along with improved management options and various fixes.

Anybody hoping to tinker with the almost final version of Service Pack 2 can download it today from Microsoft’s website in both 32-bit and 64-bit flavors – note that you will need to uninstall any beta versions first and have SP1 running. Microsoft has not confirmed a shipping date for the final version of SP2, though some speculate it will arrive as soon as next month.
