Date for Win XP Pro x64 Edition SP3

Discussion in 'Windows Update' started by Elden Dederscheck, Feb 4, 2008.

  1. So... when will Microsoft release Service Pack 3 for Windows XP Professional
    x64 Edition? That's the OS I'm using at home and I'd like to be able to get
    some of the features of the Service Pack 3 Update.

  2. *waits patiently for the answer - because I have many other questions for
    those who can accurately predict the future*

    Seriously - nothing like getting others to guess with you, eh?

    From this:
    http://www.microsoft.com/windows/lifecycle/servicepacks.mspx
    and knowing SP2 for x64 was essentially SP2 for Windows 2003...
    http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/windowsserver/bb229701.aspx
    "The SP2 update can be applied to all Windows Server 2003 products and
    Windows XP Professional x64 Edition."

    Possibilities:
    - The SP3 for Windows XP x64 Professional Edition will not be *like* the
    S{P3 for other versions of Windows XP...
    - Since the release date for the next service pack for Windows 2003 is " To
    Be Determined " <- the same should be said for whatever SP3 will be for
    Windows XP Professional x64.

    If you cornered me... I'd say "There is currently no date (not even an
    estimation) because SP3 for Windows XP Professional x64 and SP3 for Windows
    XP Home, Professional, TabletPC and Media Center Edition are not the same
    thing looking at the reference material linked to above."

    I could be wrong.
