Speed: the wow starts now with Windows XP SP3 [itwire.com]
Test results for Windows XP SP3 from Devil Mountain Software, Inc., have shown a surprising 10% performance boost compared with XP SP2, in stark contrast to slow results for the release candidate of Vista SP1.

This has caused surprise, as XP’s SP3 was reportedly on planned as a “bug fix and patch consolidation” release. As no speed improvements were previously announced or even expected for SP3, the reported speed boost has naturally come as a welcome surprise to XP users who still haven’t upgraded to Vista or as yet have no plans to.
