    Xp Sp3

    Looking at the windows updates after having installed SP2 and feeling really depressed. The option is installing SP3 and reducing that behemot list considerably.

    Stable? Anyone encountered any problems? Should I do it?

    C2D 4500 2.2 GHz
    NVidia GeForce 7300 GS 512Mb
    SATA HD and DVD

    The programmer comes home with 12 loaves of bread.

    I've had no problems whatsoever with SP3 (been running it pretty much since it came out).
    But I would urge you to beware if you have a retail machine with an amd processor because some retailers are dumb enough to install Intel drivers on their amd machines which will cause a BSOD in SP3.

    Outside of your DOS world, your header file is meaningless.

    Looks like an Intel processor to me (a Core2Duo).

    True, true. I think I missed that.
