VISTA SP1 isn't good enough to install yet, according to the computer support staff at the University of Pennsylvania.
The University's Information Systems and Computing organisation has advised faculty and students not to upgrade to SP1 any computers they might have that are running Windows Vista, Information Week writes.
The university techies said they will support Vista SP1 that's been pre-installed on new systems, but cautioned in a bulletin to campus users that it "strongly recommends that all other users adopt a 'wait and see' attitude."
The Ivy League school's technical support staffers advised "continuing to use previous versions of Windows XP and Windows Vista until after the initial bugs in SP1 are identified and fixed."
Perhaps the graybeards among the Penn techies - those who were around in 2002 - remember how Windows XP SP1 caused a lot of problems that had to be fixed with later patches. µ
