Such is life.
Obviously you missed my "Developers Beware" thread about a week or two ago.
SP2 - just fixes old bugs and prob creates a whole slew of new and exciting ones which will be fixed by SP3 but since SP3 will also create bugs and totally crash your system, SP4 will be released...and then when MS figures out that XP sucks at its very core they will redesign the GUI, add some controls, and call it a new OS even though its built on the same crappy XP core they hated in the first place.
Arrogance breeds bad code
If you're a developer in need to test for compatibility with SP2, then... well, duh.
Wait... so, you're saying Windows isn't 1337?
