I expect SP3 to be all the updates and fixes released since SP2 and nothing more. Vista is the future and I for one am gonna make the jump very very soon.

I'm running 4 Vista rigs, with no issues what-so-ever.... but my kids' rig is using XP. It's good to know that if I re-install it, it will be easier and faster...

I dont have issues with Vista but I cant use the SMP folding client and its slow for benching so its basically useless for me.

Translated: Due to the fact MS can never get something out even remotely on time, we'll see it sometine around 2012.
