Univ. of Penn. against Vista SP1 upgrade

Windows Vista SP1 Is having a tough time getting into the Ivy League.

University of Pennsylvania tech staffers are advising faculty and students not to upgrade their computers to the new service pack for Microsoft’s Windows Vista operating system.

The school’s Information Systems & Computing department said it will support Vista SP1 on new systems where it’s preinstalled, but added that it “strongly recommends that all other users adopt a ‘wait and see’ attitude,” according to a newly published department bulletin.

Penn’s ISC department advised “continuing to use previous versions of Windows XP and Windows Vista until after the initial bugs in SP1 are identified and fixed.”

Vista SP1 users have reported numerous glitches since the operating system became widely available on Tuesday.

“I downloaded it via Windows Update, and got a bluescreen on the third part of the update,” wrote “Iggy33”, in a comment posted Wednesday on Microsoft’s Vista team blog.

Iggy33 was just one of dozens of posters complaining about Vista Service Pack 1’s effect on their PCs. “What a disaster,” wrote “SeppDietrich”, of the update. “It exiled all my Nvidia drivers to the Bermuda Triangle.” (link)
