    Windows Service Pack Two (SP2), itself delayed from May but now due out next month, only covers Windows XP, leaving Windows 2000 and 9x desktop users without the latest security improvements.

    As a user/fan of al DCS progs, including TDS3 i am very curious to know if SP2 doesn't solve a lot of XP problems, that are also gonne be solved with TDS4.

    With other words, aren't there solutions build in TDS4 for XP security problems,that are gonne solved in SP2?

    I worked with a lot of OS-es NON-MS etc. and almost all trojans are exploiting
    security holes in the Windows OS-es.

    It looks to me that DCS can't release TDS4 BEFORE SP2.

    Or are the upcomming SP2 patch details already known to the public (and DCS).

    Either way, as XP is the only MS OS i use....it is only getting better....
