No Service Pack 3 until next year.

Filed under: Microsoft, Windows — Hogg @ 3:29 pm

The geniuses over at Microsoft are planning on waiting until late 2007 before they pass out the next Service Pack for Windows XP.

. . . the next service pack for Windows XP isn’t due out until the second half of 2007 — one full year after Windows Vista launches. XP SP3 will likely serve as a cumulative update for what will soon become Microsoft’s legacy operating system.

. . . the update will focus security patches and bug fixes rather than feature enhancements. Microsoft notes the 2007 date is only preliminary at this time.


I understand that there is a new version of Windows that will be released in the near future, but there are probably tens of thousands of people with machines that won’t run Vista (like me) who won’t be able upgrade for some time. Why should we be stuck with unsafe operating systems just because Microsoft is trying to make even more money?
