What's the latest on SP-3?

by Coryphaeus / February 15, 2008 9:15 PM PST

Haven't seen much lately. Does this mean no one's done it? Everyone has with no problems? Everyone has but their machines are completely destroyed so they can't post?

I have it downloaded and ready to install, but there doesn't seem to be much discussion on it.

To quote a famous actor, "Is it safe?"

They are up to build 3300. I have it installed and its working fine on my computer, windows xp pro.
Bottom line, I guess, if you don't feel adventurous, then don't install whatever version you have. Minor note, these current builds are supposed to be time bombed, meaning, after about six months from date of build, they will no longer work. Of course, by then, one would have gotten the final version and you would think have installed it. That is of course, if you were adventurous enough to begin with. LOL
Have a good weekend,

an it works faster that SP2.

If I use Belarc Advisor with it, there are less Windows Updates install on my system.

That's all I know.
