Default SP3 knocks vista into next week

SP3 for XP is out and it is great
it increases speed by about 10%
you can really notice the difference

with it xp is now said to be twice as fast as the rubbish dump that is vista

10% faster? Windows?

I doubt that... probaly just the SP3 of the Microsoft time distortion field in action

I have vista 64 bit, and its not slow on my rig... idk why ppl cry about it... the ONLY problem i have with vista is that my 5.1 speakers dont work in it, but SP1 is gonna fix that.

What is an SP anyway? Is it just a big update you download?

Its an update that you get (kinda like apple with the 10.X updates but there free and you dont get lots of pretty little things to play with, just mainly maintanace extra drivers, security updates)

You mean they're kinda like the 10.x.x updates, but they take much longer to release?

Does that SP3 only come with 32bit? Or does it come with 64bit aswell. Or can you just download S3 by itself...
