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.

This proves that even being the most hated company all around the world,

Actually, they're only "hated" by Linux and Mac fanbois.

Hardly a noticeable slice of the world population. They're probably "loved" by millions more, whom have made their living (and increased their wealth) with Microsoft.

No, they are probably hated by millions around the world with all the lost data that people have suffered with their insecure products.
They are also seen as a greedy American Corporation by the governments and the people of countless countries around the world.

And their shill supporters like you, are also seen as money greedy scumbags, as indeed your last post let us all see...
