Windows XP Service Pack 3 Build 5512

EDIT: the RTW is out you can get Windows XP Service Pack 3 here

First of all, the RTW schedule for XP SP 3 build 5512 aka "final" has been delayed from today to, don't know when, because of some issues with it's RMS users as stated on their forum here. But fret not, because as strange as it might seems XP SP 3 is available for download directly from their server here.

But I would rather not patch my system immediately. Who knows right? Because already those who already had their hands on it already reports problems regarding service pack 3, starting with PC that won't boot (WTH!?), problems with existing mouse driver, system restore not working and more listed here.

New installer will be pissed because SP2 is a prerequisite for SP3. So you might want to get your hands on a slipstreamed version instead. Windows XP with integrated service pack 3 can be found floating around the net and is recognized as Genuine by windows update service. Just Google for Microsoft.Windows.XP.Professional.Student.Edition.SP3.Integrated-ETH0 if you're so curious. ^___^

Anyway as always backup before you do this decide to install this. And good luck, you might need it.
