More Details Out About Windows XP Service Pack 3

Microsoft has let out a few more details about Windows XP Service Pack 3, coming sometime in the next 86 months (okay, 2008, hopefully, maybe, possibly). Courtesy of a Justice Department legal filing, Microsoft excplained certain changes it is making to satisfy regulators, changes you can expect to see in SP3, to Internet Explorer and Windows Media Player. The section, quoted at SoftPedia:

Microsoft has agreed to make changes to Windows XP, two Middleware Products, and Windows Live Messenger. The Windows Live Messenger changes have been delivered in the Windows Live Messenger 8.5 beta and will be included in the public release. Changes for Internet Explorer and Windows Media Player will be made available to users in August 2007 and Microsoft is discussing with the TC the delivery mechanism for those changes. The Windows XP changes will be incorporated into Service Pack 3 for Windows XP

  1. Changes? Changes? What changes?

    I’d like to at least be able to complain about them, but I guess that’s the downside of a small leak, instead of a big, fat juicy one.

    Took me a long time before I decided to install SP2 over my factory installed SP1a. Wonder if I’ll “immediately” install SP3 - I doubt I’ll beta test it, though.
