    I'm just waitin till the 29th
    hooray.

    This thread is really quite funny....

    Wait for the MS to release the service pack, and then spend some time testing it. I don't see why there is such a rush to deploy this. We all know that MS release buggy products.
    Your all just wasting time "testing" betas - when this isn't representative of what you'll actually deploy. What exactly is the rush? Just more unnecessary work as far as I can tell - there'll be a lot more documentation on this in a couple of months....

    I wonder if it's one of those early adopter things.....

    wonder if the guys rushing to try out SP3, or atleast somewhow get it installed before the 29th release are proud owners of HD-DVD players

    Well noone wants them, do they?

    I was actually quite interested in deploying SP3 on my home machine, but given the varying responses to it here, I may hold off until it's pushed through Automatic Updates.

    What i'm trying to say, although not very well, is that deplying pre-release SP3 now is a complete waste of time....much better to take a wait and see approach rather than be a beta testers/early adopters.

    As was the case with the format wars.....wait and see and then make the decision to buy once the dust has settled.

    hd-dvd is usless in vista, because MS have restricted the quality to prevent piracy.

    so is ms supporting it in xp sp3?

    Just saw this thread on Neowin. It has a link to RTM SP3 directly from Microsoft. I've downloaded it, not yet installed, but MD5 matches the advertised MD5 for SP3.

    Well.... I've got 15 laptops to install on Monday and an ICT suite to refurbish on Wednesday and 15 staff laptops to install the week after!
    If at all possible, I'd rather not have to this all once this week then haul them all back in the following month! The hour per machine saved by not waiting for WSUS to install 100 patches will be a bonus too. I am blissfully optimistic that it will all be OK!

    Ian sits and waits for his optimism to be dashed.

    Downloaded and installed here without any problems, the new remote desktop feature looks funky, that's about all I can see thats changed.

    Seems OK on my Virtual PC but not got to rebuild the images for a month or 2 yet (preparing for summer) so will wait to see any bugs.

    Tbh it's really more of an update rollup than new features, some of which (remote desktop) I been installing as optional updates for a while now - be good to be able to do it all in one go once SP3 settles in
