    May 6th 2008. That's almost 8 months now. Is there anything in the air about sp4 for xp?

    Probably not for a while. They are upto SP3 after XP was launched in 2001.

    The SP focus seems to be focused on vista and to be honest Vista needs it more than XP

    Yeah, I agree with that.
    I'm just tired of updating the fresh XPs Probably, we won't see the sp4 for XP soon or even at all.

    Thanks!

    Thought SP3 was to be the final Service Pack for XP?

    I don't think they are going to do another, not to mention the fact that sp2 to sp3 was almost 4 years.

    Windows NT had allot of service packs. They started development on SP7

    I'm sure they said Service Pack 3 would be the last, but with the big backlash against Vista making XP be the longest mainstream version of Windows yet i personally think it would be irresponsible of Microsoft not to release a service pack 4. Maybe they will have a change of mind.

    NT did suck though

    Besides, what more do you need in XP that couldn't be added with an insignificant update? extra functionality to work with 2008 GPO's is added, can't really see anything else it needs...

    Roll on Windows 7!

    I hope that sp3 isn't the last service pack for windows xp. I don't want to spend more time on updating the system(s) than I am spending now. It just takes to much time!

    has there been that many updates since sp3?

    Why dont you slipstream all the updates into an image, then you dont have to update them individually...
