I wonder what they have done..... i'm off to do research considering my work is so completely dead.

I'm not even going to bother with testing it out. MS is saying there will be some security and performance ugrades, but I doubt there will be anything in the pack that will make me want to take part in Beta testing.

I've never had any trouble with any MS Beta's. They are basically RTM's that have been tested on most common hardware, but not all.

It's mostly new featuers than any performance or fix - however SP2 does include all the fixes, updates, etc, since the beginning. If you already have SP1, you can get those additional fixes individually - it's best to wait for the final and not upgrade for extra features unless you will u se them.
