XP SP3 now available...

...well, it has finally reached us in the UK, via (an optional) windows update!

Here is why not to become a beta test monkey for MS....

I'm sure that SP3 RC1 (previously available from msdn downloads) probably catered for multiple xp versions and dealt with multiple issues i'll never understand.
The fact remains though, that there is one hell of a difference in filesize between the downloads. I hope its down to the fact that my machines are up-to-date with patches and update is only downloading what i dont already have!
