According to the file description notes, Microsoft will release the final version of XP SP3 on March 24, but the 5503 test build passes all Windows Genuine Advantage checks and is able to download Windows updates that previous XP SP3 builds weren't able to, which suggests that it could, in fact, be the final RTM build.

No you haven't, the latest one was leaked on Wednesday.

It's not worth getting excited about anyway

Just all the updates between SP2 and SP3, plus a few patches... not going to make any drastic changes or add anything useful (unless you think M$ watching you is useful).

SP3 is suppose to help make computers run faster. But most people on here really wont see this becuz thier computers dont suck.

When I had the older leaked version of SP3 I noticed XP was a bit faster overall but that came with the consequences of many applications crashing. If they have worked out the bugs and its still faster it would be worth upgrading. Plus saying you have SP3 will get you all the e-girls!

If I remember correctly even people with great rigs noticed a snappier interface with XP SP3.
