    "After a disappointing showing by Windows Vista SP1 (see previous post), we were pleasantly surprised to discover that Windows XP Service Pack 3 (v.3244) delivers a measurable performance boost to this aging desktop OS. Testing with OfficeBench showed an ~10% performance boost vs. the same configuration running under Windows XP w/Service Pack 2."

    "Since SP3 was supposed to be mostly a bug-fix/patch consolidation release - unlike w/Vista SP1, Microsoft made no promises of improved performance for XP - the unexpected speed boost comes as a nice bonus. In fact, XP SP3 is shaping-up to be a "must have" update for the majority of users who are still running Redmond's not-so-latest and greatest desktop OS."

    Great news! I have yet to make the move to Vista. Well, let me correct that last statement. I did try it, but immediately formated and reinstalled XP once it brought my system to a crawl.
    "Dude, where's my rar?"

    I'm actually using v3244 of SP3 because when I had SP2 and the +80 updates my explorer.exe kept crashing.

    People say "Ew, beta SP! Don't install it!!!" - I havn't had any problems with any of the versions.

    It's hard to believe the performance increase was a mistake. Maybe they are used to optimizing Vista already that they just applied that to SP3. Either way, I don't think I will be using Vista anytime soon so this is good news.

    Hairbautt, you still use IE?
