Windows XP SP2

I've been playing with XP SP2 since the intial beta was released, and it's been working nicely. Release Candidate 1 was made available today, and it's looking equally good.

Microsoft is really making leaps and bounds in securing the user's computer without any technical knowledge. The much improved Windows Firewall (as opposed to the old useless one) is welcome and should help the average clueless home user stay more secure.

My favorite improvement is the improved support for WiFi connections.

That's not to say the betas and RCs don't still have their little incompatibilities. For most people, things probably still aren't ready for prime time.

When it's released later this summer, the more people who upgrade, the better. I'll be making sure everyone I know installs it.
