    SP2 has some compatibility issues
    but i never faced any problems with SP3
    so i suggest everyone to use it

  4. To be honest, I can not tell the difference between the 2. My home computer hsa service pack 2, but I am also upgrading the computers here at the office to SP3.

    XP overall is stable and simple. I love it.

    I liked SP3 until I switched to Vista. I must admit though Vista is super slow and laggy. I can barely play games or do simple multimedia tasks.

    That is what you get for down grading.

    Would you trade your car that gets 20 mile to the gallon in on a car that gets 5 miles to the gallon? Nope, so dont do the same thing with your computer.

    XP Pro

    I have both SP2 and SP3 on systems and find there are advantages in both. For 95% of systems I think SP2 is the best, fastest and easiest to manage so if just asked a general question then SP2 is the way to go.
    Vista may be great for some features but is only acceptable in a system with more than 2GB RAM. If you want gaming, video or music then 3GB is a minimum.
    When networking (at an office etc) then XP is much simpler and network friendlier. There is too much tweaking required in Vista to network fully.

    I honestly didn't see any speed issues between SP2 and SP3. It doesn't matter any way since I am upgrading to Windows 7 in October.

    I'm guessing you mustn't have good hardware, which is why you would be having trouble to do certain tasks that you where able to do on XP. If you have decent hardware vista is awesome.

    Well if you don't the power to power the 20 mile to the gallon car it's no good in having.


    Anyway, back on topic. I never really had any issues with the upgrade from SP2 to SP3 and I like to have my system up to date so I would recommend SP3.
    My Awesome Signature is awesome...
