Thanks to a variety of sources, including ZDNet.com’s Microsoft guru extraordinaire Mary Jo Foley and ZDNet.co.uk’s Rupert Goodwins, we have got wind that Microsoft may announce the final version of Windows XP Service Pack (SP) 3 tomorrow.
We have made some exploratory calls to Microsoft’s press centre and when asked outright if XP SP3 was on its way tomorrow we were greeted with a “we’ll get back to you” rather than say a “not got a clue what you are on about” or a simply “no”. We might be multiplying hypotheticals but guess we’ll find out soon enough.
We are pretty sure there is goingt to be a big annoucement tomorrow and XP SP3 seems a likely candidate.
Mary Jo blogged this week that Microsoft posted the release notes (version 1.0) for XP SP3 on February 19th – which she claims is a sure sign that its ready to roll out the service pack.
