- Win XP SP2 goodies

With SP2 closing in fast for public release, IAmNotAGeek take a look at a few more indepth security benefits we will all gain with the implementation of the new service pack.


Windows XP SP2 should only be a few months away from public release. The more I use it the more I like it! On top of what I've found just by using it I read alot of Microsoft's 200 page document and found some additional goodies that will kick in in the future. The only reason why I'm writing this today is because it seems like 100% of the coverage on this has been about the security center. Yes this is an important step for Microsoft, but I want to show you guys some of the extra stuff nobodies talked about yet.
