Bleh. Windows Explorer saw me saying nice things about Vista and decided it had been making things too easy on me. Been crashing off and on the last hour+. Thought I'd caught a bug at first, but I've run two AVs.

I did the whole SP1 Beta thing for months, and found out right off the bat that it most certainly fixed some issues I was having. Those issues were fixed via regular updates. SP1 is what addresses them. So yeah, it's something you need, and will appreciate if you've had any issues.
