If you thought the next Microsoft Windows upgrade from Windows XP SP2 was to Windows Vista, then think again as reports are leaking that Windows XP SP3 is being tested by small group of testers.
AeroXperience reports that Microsoft has just recently dropped a copy of Windows XP Service Pack 3 in the lap of a small group of testers. At less than 350MB, the service pack includes fixes for over 900 reported problems, some of which have already been resolved with post-Service Pack 2 hotfixes.
Bink.nu shares their experience after installing Windows XP Service Pack 3 Beta build 3180. Here is a screenshot of the Windows configuration at Winbeta. The last service pack release Microsoft provided was for Windows XP SP2, which was released in 2004.
Windows XP SP3 will be a useful upgrade for Windows XP users and will be helpful to fix bugs and update the security issues of your computer. If you want to upgrade to Windows Vista, check if your PC is Windows Vista Capable or Premium Ready. Think beyond Vista… news is breaking out of the next Windows 7 version!
