great job ryan! sorry for the kind of noob-ish question, but wont winxp sp3 have all these updates in itself? like i'm just saying ryan could save himself a whole lot of time and agony by just creating a post sp3 pack with the few updates that come out soon after sp3 haha
There are a lot of people (Ryan may be included in this) who won't be switching to SP3 until its been out for a while and all possible quirks are found & work arounds are created.
Ryan has also stated that he has no idea if he'll continue a SP3 pack or if he'll continue a SP2 pack or if he'll even continue at all once SP3 comes out, so I for one definately appreciate his efforts.
As you can see by the length of time it has been since his last official update, the real world has taken its toll & the job that pays your bills and keeps your wife happy is the job you must put the most effort into.
With people whining constantly about the pack not being ready (this isn't implied to be about you obogobo [and in all honesty it has been a lot less prevelant now that Ryan has resumed work on these packs, but it still exists]), I can completely understand if he stops now, I wouldn't want to listen to people whine constantly (its the minority of people, but that would still piss me off royally) about not having something I do for free done yet, especially since I'm sure the amount of money he makes in donations doesn't even cover his hosting costs, yet alone his time (which is valuable).
Anyways, I've strayed far from the point I was originally trying to make which is no one knows if Ryan will even be continuing this project once SP3 comes out.
