Red face Cutting edge software, upgrade to XP service pack 3

This just in, my employer is upgrading their computers to XP service pack 3! ( and they have lots) Seems like Microsoft has insisted that we do it. The IT boys will be busy this weekend. I love working for a cutting edge employer!

I just finished up my workterm at C-NLOPB and they were in the process of doing the same exact thing!

Apparently Microsoft isn't supporting Service Pack 2 anymore but has extended support for Service Pack 3 till 2014 (don't quote me on this as it is just what I have been told).

Also, they recently got a shipment of "new" desktops at the office fully equipped with Core2Duos and Radeon HD4560s!''

The old cliche "If it works use it" rings through for most companies but I still lol'ed on the inside.
