Thread: Windows XP SP2

  1. #1

    Windows XP SP2

    Windows XP Service Pack 2 (SP2) is due out any day for the general public. I have upgraded already and have had no problems. How many people plan on getting it as soon as it is available?

    Any windows update I do . . better to be safe then sorry.

    Do you know Steve if they will offer it in CD form instead of a Download?? Dial-up sucks!

    I am sure they will... for a price of course.

    I'm not sure about that. When I built my buddy's computer and put XP in it, I went to the MS web site and found a CD that contains all the updates up till Feb 2004. I ordered it and it didn't even cost me shipping . Hopefully they can do this with SP2.

    I'm hoping it will be ready for me when I get home today. I have my PC set up to do the automatic updates. I have DSL so hopefully the download won't take very long.

    Ahhhh, I can't help but do this....

    I wonder if JT is getting the updates, maybe a dumptruck full of old-school punched cards is being dropped off at his place as I type this
    Something about him reminds me of my older brother, Rex.
