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.

Most computers need some sort of reinstall within 5 years anyways

Not in any enterprise of good size. We just spent the last 18 months forcing people to get off of Windows NT and Solaris 2.6, both of which are well over 10 year old OSes. I think we had over 5000 NT servers and over 2000 Solaris 2.6.
