Windows XP and Service Pack 3

Mary Jo Foley writes " Windows XP Service Pack (SP 3), which Microsoft officials said in January to expect in the latter half of 2007, now has slipped into 2008" at That is a lot of bad news for Windows Users, but probably good news for Sun and Various Linux vendors. What this is going to do is, force lot of Windows Users to determine if it is good for them to stay on Windows with some of their apps, or move to Vista or other platforms for better management. Just to think, if Sun ties up with Dell to ship Sun Solaris on AMD based Dell boxes or even Intel based Dell boxes.. what could happen?

I totally agree to this point, but may be this is the strategy which microsoft is playing to help the promotion of VISTA.
