Today I took the plunge, today I viewed not to look back, only to look forward, today I installed Service Pack 3 for XP.
Is it any good? are there any improvements? has it broken my system? - these questions will all be answered in due time, actually it is still installing. I havent taken the full plunge though, I am installing it on my laptop running XP Pro, if this is a successfull experiment I may port it onto my main development machine, but we will see what happens first with the laptop.
