Microsoft says no XP SP3 until 2008

By Justin Mann on
Microsoft is doing a bit of backtracking on their estimated release for XP Service Pack 3. While some had heard from Microsoft that it was to be expected before the end of this year, it seems that is not the case. SP3 isn't planned until some time during the first half of 2008. To the credit of the reports and other bloggers, it was Microsoft itself that made the release date goof. However, their service pack timeline has never changed and still shows a date some time in 2008.

As brought out, this will put SP3 out more than a year from Vista's release and over three years from the release of SP2.
