Get the Latest on XP SP3

The office pool for Windows XP Service Pack 3’s (SP3) release date is starting to run out. Some pundits had picked XP SP3 to begin shipping by the middle of April – but the final service pack for XP has yet to arrive.

Now the betting crowd is putting its chips on April 29, thanks to Windows enthusiast site Neowin.net, which claims to have acquired a copy of the plan.

“With Service Pack 3 for Windows XP just over the horizon, we’ve managed to get our hands on the internal schedule for the release of the highly anticipated update to the aging operating system,” said a posting on Neowin Tuesday.

Rumors have been flying for weeks about when XP SP3 will come out and whether demand for it will swamp interest in Vista SP1. Actually, like the ongoing Windows Vista SP1 process, XP SP3 will be released in stages.

According to Neowin’s timetable, that process begins next Monday, April 21, when the final code becomes available to original equipment manufacturers (OEM), as well as to volume license and Microsoft (NASDAQ: MSFT) Connect customers, and to MSDN and TechNet subscribers.
