XP SP2 Release Date Confirmed?

  Timmy!! 12:54 04 Aug 2004

I was testing the SP2 beta, having a problem with Windows Update v5 and sent a help request to MS.

They said that it was a problem with the v5 Beta of Windows Update but the full/final version of the site was coming out on the 10th so the problem would be resolved then.

Hopefully this means that SP2 will be out the same or the next day?

(btw I've not had any other problems at all with the SP2 beta across our network at all. Microsoft may have got it right! The only problem I may be having to go round to every user pressing yes or no to all the security questions it throws up first time round)

I have been running SP2 beta for two weeks now with only a couple of minor problems however saying that it did replace Media Player 8 with version 9 i prefer V8 but unable to reinstall it.

I do find that i get very few Windows updates now.
