Default Windows XP Service Pack 3 Leaked Details

Not only is Windows XP Service Pack 3 alive and kicking, but also managed to leak details about what the refresh will contain. The Redmond Company's policy when it comes down to future releases of the Windows platform is to gag all details. Windows XP SP3 is old news for Microsoft. And with the general availability of Windows Vista it was pushed to the background. But in all fairness, Microsoft never confirmed the cancellation of the third service pack for Windows XP. The company only scrapped it out of sight and under the rug with repeated delays.

The availability date for the first beta of Windows Vista SP1 was revealed by a U.S. Justice Department legal filling. Microsoft plans to deliver Vista SP1 beta by the end of 2007, but the date is of course nothing more than an estimation. By comparison, SP3 for Windows XP is currently planned for the first half of 2008. But Microsoft initially planned to deliver the third service pack for Windows XP in 2006, only to postpone the release to 2007 and then again to 2008.

Cool, both Vista SP1 and XP SP3 will be welcome releases. I still wonder if XP SP3 will be just an update rollup or will actually have notable new features.

I don't think that Microsoft wants to improve much win XP, because it would have a serious impact on Vista importance and appeal.
