      made me happy I develop for linux, unix, irix, *bsd, instead of windows.

      that’s how it’s impacted me.
      (and all other non microshaft developers )

      Hehehe rite on jaqui 🙂

      Lucky me i didn’t upgrade to SP2 because of the initial warnings from every Tech forum and mailing list. I can give you an example at my company.

      Some of the computers at my company suffered a virus attack that render the PC un-useable and must be re-install. So we installed with XP SP2. After finish everything seems al-rite but then our Anti-virus program gave out an error saying that XP SP2 doesn’t recognize the anti-virus and that the user must install an anti-virus program.

      It’s like the current one doesn’t even exists even though it works,but it’s annoying when you see an error on the monitor.
      So i stick with my XP SP1a with all the fixes and updates available. So far i’m happy.
