Well, I had a couple of problems with SP3 on my machine(s) but since I know what I'm doing, I was able to iron them out. Sorry you couldn't.

we've had several issues with it. The dreaded endless reboot, among other things.

Didn't SP2 have the same issue when it first came out?

SP2 pre release had lots of issues, I think the final release was pretty stable from memory.

I wasn't going to spend hours fart a$$ing around to try and resolve something that just shouldn't have happened. Linux updates all the time, and it rarely screws up systems like this!!!
