VS2005 SP1 - I'm so glad I'm not an early adopter

Because my heart wants me to be an early adopter, I'm always extra careful not to be one (hope this made sense...).

I haven't installed Vista yet, nor Office 2007. Now that Visual Studio 2005 SP1 is out, I almost installed it immediately, but I managed to restrain myself and force myself to wait for a few days.

Well, patience pays well, they say. Apparently there are serious problems with the running time, disk space used and disk I/O in general during the SP1 installation. Thankfully, Jon Galloway posted a way to overcome it.

I think I'll wait a few more days to see if anything else shows up and then I'll take my chances :-)

Update: Oren Eini has gone through a similar ordeal when he installed the service pack. Here are some other useful links from his blog:
