I don't think that this has been posted here yet, but if it has, I apologize in advance... I didn't see anything like it on the front page though. So here ya go.

PC World - Early Tests Say SP3 Speeds Windows XP

Let's hope this speed improvement also stands true for 3DMark06 scores.

I just cant see microsoft releasing a service pack that makes their older "we dont want to push this OS anymore" OS faster than their "OMG BUY VISTA NOW OR DIE" OS.

i wouldn't trust it, only because if microsoft hasn't officially released it, then there are going to be more bugs (like 3 more lol) and there prolly are viruses and crap in it. so i wouldn't touch it until microsoft officially releases it.

any word on the release date?

I use Vista SP1 and XP SP3 on my dual boot. The XP SP3 is the RC1 that was just released.

But honestly just wait. They should be out in 1q 2008. Which means anytime from Jan to March. Dont install the beta if you are not a avid beta tester. You Will, i repeat WILL, encounter issues.
