After months of delays, Microsoft has finally released SP2 for Windows XP on August 5th. The full 266MB network install is available immediately here and the smaller web install will be available on Windows Update later this month.

<sigh>

here is the working link (http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?FamilyId=049C9DBE-3B8E-4F30-8245-9E368D3CDB5A&displaylang=en)

You cannot post long links that word wrap in the input window successfully, thats what the formatting options are for.

By the same token its certainly not hard to fix such links in the browser address window either - just take out the extra "%20" that gets inserted.

Sorry, I didn't realise that this forum has a bug with links.

The tinfoil site may help though, or as suggested my Jetstream games site *shrug*

Eh?

Are there any MAJOR differences between the network install and the smaller one PC version?

Roughly how long till the smaller one is released? I am wondering whether to download 272mb of goodness over 33k (I'd just run it over a couple of nights) or to wait for the small download (how small?)
