Microsoft XP SP3 RTM Tomorrow!

Microsoft XP SP3 on track to RTM on April 21 | All about Microsoft |

Well, Microsoft is more or less going to release Windows XP Service Pack 3 tomorrow. At least to OEMs and MSDN subscribers. For us common folk, April 29 is the date the public manual download will be available, and June 10 for deployment via Windows Update.

Nothing much is new, except for a (possible) performance boost and some Vista backported features such as black hole router detection and Windows Server Network Access Protection (NAP) support. IE7 is NOT included, perhaps to give users a choice.

SP3 is poised to give Vista-haters and XP lovers alike a new lease on life. XP is more than 7 years old, and SP3 pretty much ensures that it'll be around for quite a while still.
