    "Windows 2000 Service Pack 3 is out, available now to the company's major customers, and to everybody else from Thursday. It currently being Wednesday, and Microsoft's record on dispensing service packs in an orderly and controlled manner being what it is, you will be entirely unsurprised that you can currently download it anyway, here: http://download.microsoft.com/download/win2000platform/SP/SP3/NT5/EN-US/w2ksp3.exe

    I downloaded it yesterday. I'm waiting for someone else to be the guinea pig and do the testing for me.
    Also, I'm interested in seeing if M$ modified the EULA of this one to read like the one for Media player.
    Hmmm just looked at it.
    Thats the worst I found. Guess I can live with that.
