Hi all, i've noticed Microsoft has a download for SP3 ( A HREF="click here" title="Windows XP Service Pack 3 Overview" TARGET="_new"> b>click here /b> /A> Is this the final version, and if so, is there a complete file I can downoad somewhere, for burning to a CD?

Thanks!!

Its just an overview pdf . SP3 coming next week apparently.
Dont know why though, as SP2 has been so stable and good for years. I will be wary of updating in case its just an evil ploy to screw XP up and make people switch to Vista instead. !! ( joking..... i hope )

It's for Security and Bugs

Been running the latest SP3 Beta for a couple of weeks now, no discernable difference and no problems..

So ok but what is the improvement if any after all some get quite excited that there is a new version of spybot or whatever

The main improvement is, I believe intended to be in Security, hence not a lot to actually see, though there are a couple of little extras, I think in Accessories.

I think Windows Photo Story 3 is also an addition.
