Thanks leebobs for posting this in Back Page News, our member submitted news from around the IT sector happenings. Back in January 2006 Microsoft announced that the next Windows XP Service Pack (SP3) would be launched in 2H 2007, Some three years after the RTM of Service Pack 2...
Well the Windows Service Pack Road Map was quietly updated on 17 October 2006... The major changes:
SP3 for Windows XP is currently planned for 1H 2008. This date is preliminary.Thats right, The next major update for Windows XP (If there is one at all) is scheduled to be in the first half of 2008... Nearly 4 years after SP2!
