    Was reading a link and I found this, interesting to see XP SP3 'Hot Fixes', though beta's, starting to roll out.

    I kind a wonder if it's for real - impressive site though, considering Will used Word to make it :yowch: (oh, my, that does sound a little bit sarcastic, doesn't it?:devious:)

    True and sp1, just hope SP3 comes out before Xmas.

    If they know of problems already, especially that amount of hotfixes they better get their Skates on and start releasing.

    Christmas doesn't sound too unrealistic, we'll have to keep an eye out.

    I am sure SP3 will be a quieter affair. Perhaps a rollup of IE7, WU6 (?), erm, solitaire 2, winfs. Actually, scratch quiet.

    I would tend to stay away from beta hotfixes unless you have a spare computer you can use so you don't hose your main one
