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 is the way it should have been, from the beginning. Just create a shortcut to C:Program FilesInternet Explorer/iexplore.exe on the desktop named "Internet Explorer, and boom--done. If you want to get rid of the shortcut icon (the arrow), go get TweakUI and find the checkbox that removes the little arrow from shortcut files. This is just another of a long list of changes that should have been done long ago.
