Ok so maybe not Vista itself, but applications/service packs that get released for Vista IMHO need more testing before they are released. This includes service packs that Microsoft releases. What I’m referring to is what Jeff Wharton talks about in this post where SP2 for SQL Server installs perfectly under Vista except it falls apart when trying to update security privileges if the sql instance isn’t running – obvious test you would have thought!!
I was introduced to Jeff by Rob Farley as a fellow Australian developer who also sat the beta exam: 071-540: TS: Microsoft® Windows Mobile® Application Development. I found out this morning that I passed the exam and that it has now been published for anyone to take. Jeff also runs the canberra sql server user group.
