SP2 is the shiznit man what are you talking about? Its perfect for people that have no idea wtf they are doing on a computer. Its people that dont turn on their firewall, use windows update or run virus scanners that are responsible for the thousands of viruses being spread

Blame Microsoft for having the holes but its not rocket science to secure your computer

I had SP2 RC 2 on my computer since it came out. I dont anymore because I reformatted and found bugs that were irratating. I do agree with that. But its good that it makes it so obvious.

And it didnt slow mine down any.

Remember its not Official yet

SP2 changed alot that you dont see as well. They changed how windows managed memory to end the buffer underrun crap that worms kept exploiting over and over. And other things as well
