Windows Windows XP SP3, the final service pack for Windows XP, was released to manufacturing a few weeks ago, and popped up on Windows Update about a week later. Even though the service pack is rather light on actual new features, it still caused a few problems for some users. Despite these problems, some benchmarks show that while SP3 delivers better performance compared to XP SP2, Microsoft seems to have solved many performance issues with Vista, turning the company's latest OS offering into the better choice for gaming - according to ExtremeTech.

I've installes WinXP SP3 on 2 machines and WinVista SP1 on another 2 machines and so far no problems with the updates.
In fact, copy and move operations in Vista are now much faster then before. I haven't noticed significant performance gains in WinXP though, in fact so far i haven't noticed any difference.
