XP SP3 - wait and see?
By now, most have heard that Microsoft has released Service Pack 3 for Windows XP. Most are installing SP3 and experiencing no troubles, I am taking a wait and see attitude. Check out the link and read some of the talk-backs. Not everyone is having such a good time with SP3.
With specialised software like Avid MCA and the Adobe Creative Suite, my experience has been mixed with Microsoft's service packs. I'll test it first in a Virtual Machine and throw various installed software combinations at it before I turn it loose on any "actual" machine.
If you've taken the step of testing SP3, send me a note and let me know how it worked out for you.
