I just found a reason to upgrade to Vista

I hadn’t had a compelling reason to upgrade to Vista yet. My home PC is running Vista RC2; my mail machine at work is running Vista, and provided me with the first reason I’ve had yet to upgrade to Windows Vista.

I went to the Windows Update in Control Panel, and saw I had two updates to install. There was one update for my ATI graphics card, and one for my LCD monitor. I chose to install them, figuring I could restart after finishing the install. So I updated both my LCD driver, and my graphics drivers.

My screen defaulted back to an old color and resolution, then switched back to my normal configuration. All of this happened automatically. WITHOUT RESTARTING.

Read that again people: my video card drivers were replaced while the system was still running.

I’m installing Vista as soon as I can.
