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.

"Microsoft Lets Everyone Try Windows XP SP3"

That's the most positive spin of pushing your beta testing onto the unsuspecting public .. much like Vista is not out of bete yet (hi Thom!)
