Windows XP SP2 Release … soonish …

For those who choose not to make the switch to a better browser Microsoft will be releasing Service Pack 2 for you … soonish 😛

According to this: “Windows XP SP2 RTM!“, it will be available to average-joe users on or about 16-Aug (For Aussies, this will really mean 17-Aug sometime).

While I’m impressed with the number of security updates and general reduction of attack surface in SP2, I will stick with Firefox as my browser – it’s just better in my opinion. Yes, I realise that SP2 is more than just an IE patch – all of that is still valid and effective when I’m using Firefox, and I’m very happy that so much effort has gone into making Microsoft’s best desktop OS better and more secure.
