Default XP Pro Updates

After wading through all the updates available for my OS,I'm kinda wondering which ones to get.

Which ones do you guys worry about? Should I install the SP or not?

I was also wondering if I should just turn on automatic updating and let my PC run rampant all over microsoft's updates?

I always love to stay COMPLETELY current. I feel satisfied when Windows Update says that there are no more updates left.

Of course, when I get a Mac, I won't have to deal with this schit ...

Get linux and you won't have to deal with that sh*t.

As far as updates go, you can't win. I've found that with MS, you d/l an update and it either doesn't fix what it should or creates more of a problem.

SP1 would be a good move though. (if it's a legal copy)
