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.

New software != Better in all cases. Vista being the glaring example. I'd rather have a patched XP Pro that's nice and fast than Vista.

Linux example would be SuSe 10.2. 10.2 is inferior to 10.1, and it was until 10.3 that new releases of SuSe became usable again (in my opinion).
