Windows Server 2008/Vista SP2 Downloads Available

For those of you still stuck with Vista, or those of you with Windows 2008 Servers, there’s some interesting news – Service Pack 2 is now available for download.

I haven’t tried to download any of these, as I am currently running Windows 7 on all of my personal PC’s.  The other two PC’s currently in the house, my wife’s MSI Wind and my daughter’s seriously hurtin’ PowerBook G4 both run Windows XP Home and OSX 10.4.11 (I think), respectively.  I did try to download the ISO, but the server must be seriously busy, as it just sat there for about 30 minutes or so trying to load the download page.
