Windows Paul Thurrot writes about Windows XP SP3: "If you were looking for any glimpse into the mind of Microsoft, this is it: the company has completely abandoned Windows XP, and it has absolutely no plans to ever ship an XP SP3. My guess is that Microsoft will do what it did with the final Windows 2000 Service Pack: claim years later that it's no longer needed and just ship a final security patch roll-up. This is the worst kiss-off to any Microsoft product I've ever seen, and you'd think the company would show a little more respect to its best-selling OS of all time."

It's hard enough to say that a third service pack for XP is needed.
In my opinion, two service packs should be more than enough, but hey, it's microsoft!

(it's like bananas, maturing at the customer =P)

yes, but when you ripen a banana at home, they are far far far more tasty compared to when they are first bought.
Same as Windows
Same as Ubuntu

Personally I prefer greenish bananas: more tangy, and less grainy texture. I heard they can be a bit bad for you when underripe, though.
