According to Neowin, the long awaited Service Pack 3 for Windows XP is almost here. Although unconfirmed by Microsoft just yet, the dates would be the following:
- April 14, 2008: Support becomes available for the release version of SP3
- April 21, 2008: OEMs, Volume License, Connect, MSDN and TechNet
- April 29, 2008: Microsoft Update, Windows Update, Download Center
- June 10, 2008: Automatic Updates
For most of us, this would mean we could get an official release of SP3 on April 29th and for those of us who need to test SP3 for larger environments, we should have until June 10th before it gets automatically pushed out to customers.
