Windows Microsoft has posted the release candidate of Windows XP Service Pack 3 to its download site. The move marks the first opportunity for all users of the six-year-old operating system to try out its final upgrade. Previously, several thousand users were given access to test builds of SP3 only by Microsoft's invitation. Update: I just installed the RC on my Windows XP MCE installation, and it all went fairly painless. I haven't noticed anything radically different either yet.

Just do it like this:
If you want a long supported OS use CentOS. 5 years is a long time in IT. Most computers need some sort of reinstall within 5 years anyways. Those would be the times to update to a newer CentOS release.

I dont think there is anything traumatic about doing it this way ;)


BTW: Are there distros with longer support than 5 years?
