Windows XP Service Pack 2 Spotlight

This links page from TechRepublic collects all of their Windows XP service Pack 2 articles in one place. There’s a News, an Installation, and a Discussion section, all with multiple articles listed.

Personally, I’ve already rescued one customer whose computer was hooped by Service Pack 2, so I’m waiting until Microsoft releases the inevitable upgrade and then I’ll try it on my backup XP box first. My guess is around 10% – 15% of XP users are having problems – not surprising when you look at the size of the network istallation package – 266 MB. That’s a lot of modifications – hell, that’s the average size of a Windows 95 installation!
