Windows XP SP3 Released – quietly

Wednesday, May 21st, 2008

XP, which has now been superceded by Vista and Vista SP1, has been show to still have MS Support with the release of their lastest service pack – SP3. This is a rollup of the previous 2 service packs and all the updates since SP2 to get the machine running as fast and secure as possible. Unlike XP SP2 many years ago and Vista SP1, both of which received heaps of press since they were needed, SP3 has just come out through windows updates and the Microsoft website – and there you go. Obviously MS is putting their time and money into Vista – not unreasonable since XP is now a 7 year old system.
Download either via Windows Update on your PC or the internet, or from the Microsoft Web site as a complete download (315MB).
