Mary-Jo Foley's blog over on zdnet claims that the third (and last?) service pack for XP starts rolling down the Automatic Update funnel tomorrow (Thursday July 10th).
If true what does this mean?
- Anyone in a SOHO setting with an automatic download and install option is going to see their internet speed be hammered by a download likely to be in 100's of Mb. And your computer may not work the way it should afterwards!
- Network administrators need to be ready for the inevitable side effects of this installation - there will always be some incompatibilities when a service pack hits town.
Watch and wait on this one.
