Yesterday, I happened to be at this Microsoft Arabia Partners Event, their annual bash for all MS partners in the country. When the GM of MS started his talk, was quite surprised to find a bullet point “Windows XP SP2” on his agenda. I mean, I wouldn’t have thought that would be an agenda item for such an event. Then he started his talk, spoke quite well, and after winding his way past the other items, got to XP SP2. Says he, “Next week we will be holding an event to announce the arrival of XP SP2 in the Kingdom.”
That totally killed me! Boy, so now it’s cool to issue Service Packs eh?
What next? We are delighted to announce that Longhorn will ship with only 1008 bugs?
