"As if XP wasnt bloated enough..."

November 16, 2008  |  By gordonshummway

 |  Version: Microsoft Windows XP Service Pack 3 1.0 SP3 final

Pros

Resistance is futile. :)
Things like PC-Tools free Anti-virus won't run without it.
It has anl uninstall feature.

Cons

No compelling reason for it besides unseen security patches.
My themes stopped working (it probably just turned off the service).
I have better things to do with .63 gig than slow down bootups & processes, brutally thrash the HD, etc. AM I cynical?

Summary

Remember to uninstall whatever depends on svc pk 3 or system elements could be unstable. ie: PC tools AV will simply not allow ANY network traffic with no error, and will causerandom RPC shutdowns, etc.

Dear MS. PLEASE learn these philosophies:
1st rule of doctors and programmers: "do no harm"
"more is not always more gooder"
"moderation in all things"
"KISS"
"other"
