Windows XP SP3?


With Mac Tiger OS-X hogging all the headlines, why should Microsoft be left behind. There is news that Microsoft might release an Windows XP Service Pack 3 before Longhorn. Steve Ballmer hinted at this at a conference in Sweden last week. He was one of the speakers at the National Data Security Day in Sweden. He also hinted that the upcoming version 7 of Internet Explorer should have anti-phishing technology built-in. (via)



longhorn is the windows xp coded in c# and they wanted to use only the .net framework (but this is no longer the case, it’s much to complicated and microsoft will have it’s work cut out) think of .net framework as a directx for all applications (not graphics just … framework). if they succed (that I doubt) it will be the most faster and safe windows ever :) (finally !).
I’ve got a little sidetracked … anyway windows xp sp3 is no more than a collection of bug fixes and security patches rolled into 1 (btw … what hapend to the rollup program microsoft promised us?)

Does that mean that Longhorn will be released early? I thought Longhorn was SP3. It has been described a a “train wreck”.
