In fairness the issues appear minor with intermediate workarounds.

Some people have beta versions.

or SP2 even :oP

Some are not released until Jan\2005

Have not checked, but other peripheral brands may be effected,

It is ridiculous to expect manufacturers of hardware to release drivers for beta versions of service packs. Especially one whose release is currently suspended indefinately. This rampant palm sweating generating excitement over the release of SP2 baffles me,

My Epson printer and scanner work fine with SP2 beta.

I have to echo ensonricky, all this unatural feverishness over SP2 beats me completely. There is virtually no differnce visually and I get the feeling that some people are getting over-excited or have too few interests in life.

SP2 has a lot to offer, but as yet hardly anyone knows about it. This is a major Microsoft Service pack, and no doubt everyone will eventually be running it. Give it a chance - there are some real benefits for the average user.

Drivers should not be an issue, and I suggest that you wait until the full release.

Considering the Release to Web date for SP2 is supposedly tomorrow (later in the week for windows update)

November is a bit long to wait. The printer will still work though from what I've read, it's just a few problems with print preview functions etc..

Ooops.. I keep thinking it's sunday today. Release to web is Monday :)
