    Bink has an interesting article up on his site concerning Windows XP SP3. Microsoft has apparently pushed back the release date of SP3 to the second half of 2007. Steve Ballmer (Microsoft executive had originally announced that the 3rd service pack for XP would be released before the release of Longhorn (now Windows Vista).

    Bink suggests that we could see a "Rollup Package" coming from Microsoft in the near future for XP, with the possibility of that package replacing SP3 all together. One can also reason that Microsoft will use the delay of SP3 to further the cause of upgrading to Vista later on this year. Server 2003 SP2 is still scheduled for release in Q3/4 of this year and no more service packs will be made available for Windows 2000 or NT4.
