It is more secure. Over 1,000 updates are in SP3. It is always recommended to be fully up to date.

I was told by friends that sp3 was faster than vista and and allocated more addresses to ram. Is this true or were they blowing smoke?

OF course XP SP3 is faster than Vista. All the tests they do on this is where the system is extreme for XP uses but bare minimum for Vista requirements. So of course XP is gonna out perform it....

It doesnt allocate more to RAM.
