Very interesting. The links all appear to be "final" versions but Microsoft hasn't yet updated its website to reflect the release. I think I'll wait to see it on their website before downloading.

Too bad Vista came out before this. I would've liked to use SP2 with my copy of XP x64.

I don't get this: SP2 (32-bit x86) CD IMAGE = 523.2 MB

I thought its for Windows XP x64 so why would I want anything but: SP2 (64-bit x64) CD IMAGE =475.0 MB ?

That's it, I'm migrating from XP 32-bit to XP 64-bit! (Y)

Hmm, I grabbed the ISO images for 32-bit and 64-bit - the 32-bit regular installer link doesn't work and the ISOs contain the single exe file installers anyway. The exe on the x64 build has a digital signature whereas the 32 bit build doesn't. Has anyone managed to get the normal 32 bit installer and if so, does it have a digital signature?

I know it's legit since it's straight from MS, I just thought that was a little odd. They both have a build number of 5.2.3790.3959 though.

this SP2 is for Windows Server 2003, not just the x64 edition of Windows XP. The Windows XP x64 edition uses the same code, or to put it another it's a home-friendly version of the server.

EDIT: Above SP2 (64-bit x64) link has just been updated and list cleaned up!!

No, the CD image just has the same exe installer on along with another 130MB to 150MB (depending on 32-bit or x64) of crap that you likely don't need. You'll still need to make your own slipstreamed image if you want to go that route.

No, I believe it's just the update file itself, packaged into an ISO file with a snazzy auto-run screen.

EDIT: Beat by half a minute! :-P

Sorry for double post, edit button disappeared.

The startup is much slower.. anybody else notice this? It may be that I just have to defrag/use bootvis again since the files probably changed.
