    Yes, I believe they will ... but it won't be so soon. Probably sometime next month.

    For PC users today, there are several ways to get Windows XP SP1:
    Download it from the Windows XP SP1 Web site.
    Order the Windows XP SP1 CD from the Windows XP SP1 Web site. You will be charged a fee of $9.95 (USD) or $14.95 (CDN), including shipping and handling charges.
    Purchase a new PC beginning fall 2002—some systems will come with Windows XP SP1 pre-installed.
    Purchase the full or upgrade version of Windows XP Home Edition or Windows XP Professional—the installation CD will contain Windows XP SP1 beginning late fall 2002.

    Well that was what I was able to find on M$ site related to the SP1 and when it can be purchased with the full XP release
     
  6. if its like every other NT product, NT, 2000, the sp will just come as a second disk might be preloaded on a bought computer but the sp code isnt added to the xp disk code on one disk.......

    every new computer ive setup(nt and 2000) came with a os disk and the latest sp disk used to have hundreds od 2k sp1 disks laying around, make good dew coasters :D :D :D

    Why can't we just trade up to the official MS slipstreamed xp for a modest cost? Surely that could be done. Knowing MS it won't be. :(

    i have a win2k pro cd oem that has sp1 slipstreamed
     
  12. it will be something new then if they do... has never been done before. the 2k os disk you buy today new is same as final back when it went gold....... the sp come out on another disk and you ally the newest fror the day.......... all nt products are that way its the way they were designed, the modular approach. un like the 9x code where they would repress
     
  13. well then maybe since they are making so much more money now with activation and dont have as many OS's to take care of they have to time to do it.

    actually more i think about it with all the activation hoopla included in the sp, they prob will so theres no more older copies of XP out there without it to crack/use
