- Win XP SP2 (RC1) Preview

Martin from IAmNotAGeek has decided to post up his full coverage of Service Pack 2 for WinXP. The first release candidate of SP2 surfaced just a couple of days ago and is understandably somewhat more refined than previous releases covered across the web, this is what was used in conjunction with Martin's article. He also posted up an article no more then a week ago covering certain aspects of the service pack not touched on by others, you can take a look at that here.


Microsoft is putting the finishing touches on everything now that it's reached a release candidate stage. I'm writing this preview because all of the other previews out there have become rather dated from Microsoft working on things for several months. The features covered here are alot closer to the final product.
