Windows Microsoft has had to create a new build of Windows XP Professional for computer makers because the six-year-old operating system's continued popularity has nearly exhausted the supply of product activation keys. The new build, dubbed SP2c, includes no fixes or feature changes, but was created simply to address the shrinking pool of product keys. XP Pro SP2c, which has been released to manufacturing, will be made available to OEMs and system builders next month, said Microsoft.

The only downside of this beautiful OS is that it's unsecure in Administrator Mode which is the default. Make all your family and friends running XP in Limited mode and you'e got the best solution for them.

I tried that, but getting some software to run as a normal user is difficult. Often you have to change permissions on directories and registry paths.
