Windows Despite Microsoft's obvious focus on selling Windows Vista to its customers, it hasn't yet forgotten about all those people out there that still use Windows XP (personally, I use Windows XP MCE 2005). The company has confirmed it has finally 'released to manufacturing' the third service pack to Windows XP - 7 years after the operating system's original release.

I only upgraded last month from 2k (newer visual studios won't run on 2k). Had to do a lot of tweaks (disable popups, disable update-restart nagging, etc.), but so far so good. Doesn't seem to be much slower than 2k, but then again my dev machine is powerful (but no vista for thanks:D).

I will wait a while before installing, don't want to hose my installation after a month:D
