Windows XP SP3 Release Candidate

by on Jan.29, 2008, under software

A litle belated news but for many people quite important – on 12/18/2007 Microsoft released for public testing third service pack for it’s so far most favourite operating system Windows XP. You can download it here –  it’s 336MB. It doesn’t include any new functionality and is just a rollup of all hotfixes and updates since 3+ years old SP2. It would have been nice if it included Internet Explorer 7 and Windows Media Player 11 but ‘thanks’ to idiots in various EU and US commities ‘protecting’ us from MS monopoly it is available only as a separate download.

As with any other RC sofware it is not recommended for production machines. but from my experience so far is pretty stable with no big problems. Windows Vista SP1 RC is out there as well though not widely available (but those who want it know where to find it :)
