Re: XP sp3

That is just a pdf white paper giving an overview of SP3. SP3 has not yet been released as far as I can tell.

 

Update:  I checked this page on the MS site and SP3 is in RC2 (release candidate 2) stage:

 http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/windowsxp/0a5b9b10-17e3-40d9-8d3c-0077c953a761.aspx

 

When it is released, if you have automatic updates turned on, your computer will download it automatically as part of windows updates.

Re: XP sp3

I can't find any definitive release date on the MS website.  This page just says first half of 2008.  I guess it could be anytime between today and june 30, 2008.
