Windows XP Service Pack 3 Editor's Review
Where would we be without Microsoft’s Windows. It is to computers what wheels are to cars, and because Windows XP Service Pack 3 is a cumulative update of all former XP service packs we thought it warranted our attention.
What is it and what does it to?
It’s pretty self-explanatory really. The Windows XP Service Pack 3 allows all users of the aging XP operating system one final chance to upgrade as it’s slowly phased out by Microsoft. The software works a lot faster than XP SP2, and that our friends, as you well know, is quite fast. During the advent off Vista, many people still clung stubbornly to Windows XP and it remains a firm favourite with businesses all over the world.
The final service pack is a a collection of previously-released fixes and product enhancements, as well as a few new features that are unique to this release and improve the system’s reliability and security, such as Network Access Protection compatibility, Product Key-less install option, Kernel Mode Cryptographics Module, and the “Black hole” router detection algothrim. There’s nothing that new or dramatic here as you can see, but nevertheless, the Windows XP Service Pack 3 still boasts features well worth having.
Pro's: XP is universally loved by computer users everywhere, and anything that makes it a little more efficient and faster, is more than welcome as far as we’re concerned.
Con's: Many users have complained about complicated installation glitches when it comes to the XP Service Pack 3 and have warned that people should download with caution. Internet Explorer 7 is also not included in this package.
Conclusion: It does pretty much what is said on the tin and in our own humble experience, download and installation was pretty simple. Overall, it’s very much a case of so far, so good as we say a long goodbye to a tried and trusted friend called XP.
