Windows "In the past, we've speculated on an early 2008 launch, and according to a recent Redmond Channel Partner Online article, Microsoft could be planning just that. "We're currently planning to deliver SP3 for Windows XP in the first half of CY2008. This date is preliminary, and we don't have any more details to share at this time." Service Pack 2 was released in August of 2004 and added various features like the Internet Explorer Pop-up blocker, Windows Security Center, firewall updates and improved wireless and Bluetooth support."

C'mon fellers - get real.

XP-SP3 will be specifically designed to kill XP dead.

Scattered among the "improvements" will be dozens of gotchas deliberately engineered to destabilise XP, screw up existing drivers and drive people to Vista SP1.

With most copies of XP already sold and the fact that MS will no longer be selling XP at all quite soon, why on earth should MS have any interest in improving it.

They want to sell Vista now and they'll have no compunctions strangling its older sibling.

They're soooo predictable....
