Am I right that there are two versions of XP-SP2, one developers versions and a Jo Bloggs version?
What ersion is the one on the PC world disk.
Now I cannot find that disk anymore and the microsoft site can not get the download of SP-2 to work.
Are there mirror sites?

cheers

One was RC2 (release candidate 2), and was not the final version.

The other was the final release version.

As far as I know the PCW CD had RC2 on it, as the CD was pressed before the final version was released.
