Looks like we've made SP1 RC1 available to the public to download . . . Vista is a bit of a mixed bag for me as of late (but then again - I suffer so you don't have to - I've been running SP1 for months now). The performance of SP1 as compared to SP0 is nearly night and day (on my notebook) in one important scenario: sleep / resume. The improved file copy performance and stuff is just gravy. Vista SP1 should be extremely solid when it releases and I'm glad we're taking the time to do it right and not trying to rush it.
