AAUGH! JPEG file attachment! Run! Hide!
But seriously, folks, is there real point in trying to avoid SP2? It is
going to get on your system eventually. Resistance is futile, you will
be assimilated (especially if you turn on automatic update).
Of course, you COULD leave automatic update off, and continue to run
manual updates for the next year, at which point MS will de-support XP
SP1, and you will have to update anyway. (Or you can just choose not to
run updates at all, and get infected by the next umpteen trojans/worms)
Personally, I LIKE SP2. Pop-up blocker, decent personal firewall, IE
extensions disabler, and major Tablet PC TIP enhancements are all
excellent features. Additionally, pre-installation of SP2 on our
systems images will help us to avoid more lengthy patch management in
the future. SP2 includes something like 150 separate updates... manual
installation of those patches is very painful.
