SP2 Will Cause Problems in 1 out of 10 applications

Post by Apoptosis » Tue May 11, 2004 12:07 pm

SP2 will be labeled on the box as having "advanced security technologies," highlighting its set of updates to firewall, antivirus and network protection mechanisms of the Windows operating system. Although the company says that some of these changes will cause problems with around one in 10 existing applications, it is not planning a certification program and is not maintaining a public list of troublesome software.
That's great... 1 in 10 applications are having issues and Microsoft won't maintain a public list or a certification program! Guess we all have to find out the hard way

I have seen a few broken by SP2 and some are working with the newer release while it has broken others that worked with the previous version of SP2 :)

Definitly, have you tried Xandros 2.0 Deluxe... I think that when SP2 comes out I am going to repartition my hard drive and set up a dual boot with XP and Xandros. I will of course try to mostly use Xandros because I am a definitly considering making the switch.

Linux is appealing, but most games dont run on Linux and drivers are a BIATCH to find for it, especially for less well known hardware!

Only use Windows to game... make Linux your primary OS otherwise.
DualBoot!

Hah! They all thought me mad for staying with ME! Well, who's mad now baby!

Ah, hell, who am I kidding. I'll change over to XP when AMD makes up their mind on the socket for the 64 processors.

SP2 has been working just fine for me......Windows Beta Tester, I've got the latest versions of all drivers and all updates to the software I use and I have zero problems...........I guess it depends on how updated you keep your system....... :shock:
