Helping people with computers... one answer at a time.
Read the article that everyone's commenting on.
I installed Windows XP SP3 beta version on my laptop and desktop. so far I haven't seen much of a difference, a little of bit of boot-up boost and some built-in application changes, remote desktop client being one of them. but for most people waiting for the official release from microsoft is the best thing to do. I hacked the registry to fool the beta tester server to give me access to download SP3, but I guess if anything happen to my computer, Microsoft won't support me in anyway.
Seeing as I'll never ever ever install Vista on my own personal equipment, I'll definitely be installing SP3.
My bigger question is if I should upgrade OS X Tiger to Leopard now or wait until 10.5.1 when they've worked out some of the kinks.
Great article. I appreciate your insight.
I've read this article and there has been several complaints about IE7. What is wrong with it?
First, let me say, "Thank you." Your explainations of the SP3 were clear, precise and easy to understand. Like other users out there in cyber world, SP3 has been a tempting, tasty lollipop. But with your clear words of wisdom, I certainly will be patient and wait for the best Microsoft version. My laptop cost me big bucks--why should I mess it up with some cheap junk just because I just want a quick taste before anyone else? Thanks for your advise.
I've read the article and the comments. One comment asks what is wrong with IE7. I'm using IE7 right now, so I'd like to know what the complaints are, too.
Roll Firefox guys. Why to use internet explorer if you can do it better with Firefox!
I re-iterate all good remarks
SP3 (first I've heard of it)...!
Sporting SP2, when 3 comes out officially, I will certainly upgrade the old girl, but 2 questions arise; 1) is it not possible to go into Add/Remove Windows components and unistall explorer from the Xp windows ? I have done this with Messanger...!
2) The Mrs has Win Xp Pro installed currently without any upgrades - then she's not on the net!
Having just got wired with a router, I intend to put her box on the net (at her request) - should I upgrade straight to SP3 when it arrives - or - should I upgrade to sp1 thru sp2 and then sp3...?
Thanx in advance maestro...
There really is no one else to ask ...!
I downloaded the beta IE7 when my IE6 was giving me fits, and it worked so much better from the start. Now that IE7 is up and going I find that for the most part I have not had too many problems.
I have a comment. You said "first" twice. You can't do that, it's against the law and you should spend 2 days in jail.
