The folks at Neowin claim to have managed to get their hands on the internal schedule for the release of XP SP3.
Here's the roadmap that the release according to Neowin:
- April 14: Support becomes available for XP SP3
- April 21: OEMs, volume license, Connect, MSDN and TechNet subscribers get SP3
- April 29: SP3 available via Microsoft Update, Windows Update and Download Center
- June 10: SP3 available via Automatic Update
Is this correct? Only time will tell ... I've heard dates all across the board so I'm not betting the farm on anything.
