Windows XP Service Pack 3 release date set:

On April 29, 2008 Windows SP3 will be released. As was noted in a previous post, Windows XP SP3 is released. For those of you that want to get familiar with the installation process here is a slide show for you at this link.

I will be reviewing the installation details and updating any issues and sending out a service alert to my customers so that they can deploy this release as easily as possible. The initial download is small at around 70 MB and the patch expands to about 580 MB and takes about an hour on a 1.5GHz Athlon system with 1GB of RAM.

Will update as more information becomes available.

Vinny,

I am afraid to say there never WAS a plan to support or implement DirectX 10 for XP.

Read under heading: Will DirectX 10 be available for Windows XP?

As to your other comments about turning XP into a “steppingstone” to Vista I am awaiting to install it myself before I pass judgement. I do know that the articles I have read do not make any mention of this trend so if your clients can be more specific that would be more helpful.
