sp3 pushed back
last year microsoft had said that sp3 would be be released before the release of windows vista. now reports of the release date of sp3 will be pushed back until mid 2007. thats almost a half a year after the release of vista, thats if vista is released at the time microsoft say's it will be ready. Now home users, admins and OEMs who deploy XP have to download a lot of fixes when a new PC is installed. admins can slipstream the fixes but it is a hassle. A SP is very convenient in that way. No wonder techies build there own SP's and release the to the web. Waiting 3 years for a SP is too long!
