Remember the days before ryanVM. . . where you'd install a computer then do the SP2 install. . . then do all the post Hotfixes (you had) then do a MS update!! then cry yourself to sleep when you remember your only charging mates rates for this install.

I couldn't care less if SP3 never arrives (ACTUALLY I THINK RyanVM should be getting paid from microsoft). . . seeing as Microsoft haven't even bothered with a Rollup Servicepack (EXCEPT that stupid ISO with all the Post sp2 horfixes and more crap)

Good work Ryan you've saves me alot of stress and time since I found you and your buddies!!

Should start a poll and ask the question. . . who trusts RyanVM more than microsoft?? :D

from article wrote:.....
Others see a financial motive behind the delay. "They're going to let users kind of sit there without anything new on XP for a while, because they want you to move to Vista," said Allen, who also maintains the Hotfix.net Web site.
.....
Through its public relations agency, Microsoft declined to allow its executives to be interviewed for this story.
.....
It seems M$ no longer cares for windows xp. They are getting ready for a second sp for server 2003, not after a long period like xp's sp3. They are updating their server releases, but dont care for xp as they do like server.

How about you right click on his signature image and find out it points to: http://imz.skzhosting.org/sig/imz.png ? :) Just put it in your signature. (Using the [ img ] tags.)
