Windows XP SP2 released

9 August 2004, 1:50 am ISTFiled under: Microsoft

Microsoft has finally released the much anticipated Windows XP Service Pack 2 (SP2). But don't jump to windowsupdate yet. Because it is not available there at present. Microsoft is doing a phase by phase release of the software. However, it is expected to be released to general Windows Update service in next week or so. It will also be available for customers in CDs for free!

I have given serious thought to not installing the SP2. But I 'll wait for a while before actually taking a final decision.

Has anyone downloaded and installed it yet ? Are there any last minute bugs or problems ? Do let me know ...

I tried to install and push out to 2 computer on my network. I don't mind the huge file size since I have cable internet but it took forever to install. The only problem I faced was it did something to my GL for my graphics card. I couldn't play my games until I fixed and loaded all new drivers.
