  • XP-SP2 for all

    Hey,

    Our microsoft 'spy' (forgot his nickname ) may already know it.

    SP1 didn't work on a pirated system (downloaded, not bought ) but SP2 will do so. I don't care since i bought XP Pro...

    I don't know the reason but i read that 2 minutes before. Maybe ... (still not know his name) can confirm that!?
    That's the end of that!

        Who's to say it still won't lock em out of windows update, or report iilegal installs back to ms? If I wasn't legal I would be real careful with that service pack until someone said otherwise (tested it )

          Just buy a licensed copy of Windows, as you should, and you will be fine.

            Or maybe not...

            Basically it's the same as with SP1; if you're using a known leaked key then you're screwed

              Yep, Microsoft has quashed those comments :

              So now it is not entirely true.

                Where is the SP2 download link? I've personally never seen it, but then again, I don't really keep up with updates as I should probably heh.

                  It is only in Release Candidate stage so far.

                    Ah, thanks Wayne, then I guess I will be waiting a little longer. When it comes to my computer, I'd rather not place anything unstable (or possibly unstable) on it; especially since I use it for business and don't need to be formatting or the like due to it.

                      Well I used SP2 RC1 for a while and it was rock stable for me. Although I recently reinstalled Windows and I didn't bother installing SP2 again. Guess I'll wait for the final... there's not a lot of exciting stuff in it for me anyway, seeing as I stopped using IE a while ago and don't need a software firewall.

                      You're right though, if you use this box for important stuff then you shouldn't mess with it.

                        My only complaint on all all this - what about the guy sitting here with three 2.5 ghz computers and higher, all three with legal copies of Windows, and the disk for the computer I actually use is screwed up and doesnt work, and the other two who knows whatever happened to the disks (was in another office before I grabbed the two boxes).

                        So I am sitting here working on a evalution 2003 server for lack of anything else (and dont say linux, I would rather grab a dull knife and perform a self-service sex change than use linux)

                          Have you seen how much they go for?

                          I don't bloody think so, i'll stick with my win98 thank you.

                          If MS reduced their OS prices a little, then more people would buy.

                              Get a replacement disc. Won't cost more than $10USD at most. You already own the licenses, you just need the media.

                              Last I checked you could get an OEM copy of XP for about $160USD. Not THAT expensive.
