Windows Microsoft has flung open the door for anyone interested in getting their mitts on release candidate 2 of Windows XP SP3. The software giant had made RC2 of the final service pack of XP already available to several thousand beta testers a few weeks ago. Now, it feels brave enough to pump it out to the masses.

I agree. I'm also thinking it might be a good time to update a slipstreamed disk, pull out the old cpu and blow the dust out of old Bess...give her a shot of adrenaline via a faster cpu off newegg and then install fresh.

Hopefully, that will tide me over until Windows 7 finally comes out.

How many are out there like me in a holding pattern regarding upgrading until Vista is a memory?

I'm praying for the day when I can wake up and not see Windows Vista on the shelves.

You're making the assumption that Windows 7 will be an improvement.

I sure hope it is. How would MS deal with another release that gets the same(bad)press as Vista has. Might be a good time to buy shares in MS though.
