Windows XP Service Pack 3 Out This Year

Microsoft's tight lips regarding the next Windows XP Service Pack have led many analysts to believe that Microsoft is planning to cancel it, but Microsoft has finally dated it.

However, even when announcing the date Microsoft kept it vague. All we know for now is that Service pack 3 along with Windows Server 2008 will be released within the next 7 months and that they will both support for interoperability between Microsoft's Network Address Protection (NAP) and Juniper Network's Unified Access Control (UAC) standards for network access control (NAC) deployments.

The complete Service Pack 3 features set (and the reasons why you should install it) are yet to be announced.

Windows XP Service Pack 3 Out This Year

Anonymous at 19:5 25/5/2007:There are tons of Vista mods for XP, though I don't think any emulate Aero or the nice glass look either for that matter. I could be wrong but I'm yet to see something like that. Vista sucks IMO, I'd like to see DX10 in SP3 .

windows vista is a big scam, no wonder only 244 copies were sold in china, the chinese are not stupid. gates likes to rip off the people who made him rich. people i have talked to are all pissed off about buying vista and the missleading advertising.

if MS is smart, (which they can be sometimes) they will notice that not as many people are jumping on the vista bandwagon fast enough. their gaming division has felt it nessessary to limit their new games to vista, and that may be a mistake given the low sales on it. you can only sell as many copies as systems that will run it. putting DX10 on XP may not help vista much, but it would make a lot more people happy. besides, they can always make SP1 for vista have something mindblowing in it that makes XP look like crap.

@Me, I havent had a crash for a while now... a very long while. Might it be that your OS admin skills suck? (no offence, but XP isn't 98)@Anonymous at 3:43 8/6/2007"besides, they can always make SP1 for vista have something mindblowing in it that makes XP look like crap."... you think ppl will then buy Vista?@Anonymous at 6:4 6/6/2007There is a software group that made a project, currently it's in alpha state, on DirectX 10 layer for XP. So guess you need to read more! XP can handle DX10!
