Service Packs are really what the name implies - they are maintenance of the operating system. They are a compilation of all the service updates that come out daily wrapped into one bundle and that is why you have to install them in order - SP1, SP2 then SP3. I have just had to repair a laptop that runs Vista which was looping through an update, continually re-booting and never starting up. So all these automatic updates, or bug fixes to call them by their real name, sometimes cause more problems than they solve!

Yes, I agree. XP with SP3 is now as stable as Win2000 but without the compatibility problems of Win2000. I think Vista will vanish like WindowsME did when the new Windows7 comes out later this year.

yes I do agree once window 7 comes out ...window vista will phase out.. You see window 7 works well in low ram system ..where else vista need to have at least 2gb of ram to run properly

SP# is far better than previous SPs. It is very big inits setup size and takes time to install but is very good addon for Windows
