Any news on the - very much related - Windows 2003 SP3? I would love to avoid approx. 50 hotfixes to each fresh installation I do!

Finally... been putting off a Windows reinstall until SP3 rolls around, and I'm at home for the entire week of the 29th of April. For once, Microsoft got their timing right.

I beg thee to install x64 :) (at least try it with a dual boot). It's been 1000% more reliable and much faster. I even have all drivers for my stuff including cell phone.
