Windows XP SP3 RTM should be out today, still not up on Technet. Checked Neowin and found the announcement here (http://forums.microsoft.com/TechNet/ShowPost.aspx?PostID=3214173&SiteID=17).

Today we are happy to announce that Windows XP Service Pack 3 (SP3) has released to manufacturing (RTM). Windows XP SP3 bits are now working their way through our manufacturing channels to be available to OEM and Enterprise customers.

We are also in the final stages of preparing for release to the web (i.e. you!) on April 29th, via Windows Update and the Microsoft Download Center. Online documentation for Windows XP SP3, such as Microsoft Knowledge Base articles and the Microsoft TechNet Windows XP TechCenter, will be updated then. For customers who use Windows XP at home, Windows XP SP3 Automatic Update distribution for users at home will begin in early summer.

Thanks to everyone here who installed the public betas – you not only gave us detailed feedback but also helped each other out with timely troubleshooting. Through the beta program we found several important issues and were able to confirm some essential fixes. We couldn’t have done this without you.

We will still be monitoring this forum during the next few weeks in case you have more feedback about the release of Windows XP SP3.

On behalf of myself, Shashank Bansal and Windows Serviceability, many thanks.

I think this is all Bull**** cuz there isn't anything on MS about this.

I don't see this for atleast another month or 2 based on MS's history at releasing this stuff.

I hope it comes out today but im not getting my hopes up.

Look like RTM build 5512 had been leaked on torrent, downloading now and will test it on VirtualPC to see if it is real or fake.

Seems to be the same for MSDN sub'ers. I think it's fair enough. Afterall, it's not as though us tech support and software developers need to be one step ahead of the customer for any reason, is it?

Its almost like they are pushing this back in the hopes more people buy Vista. I think people will come back from Vista to XP once SP3 is out. I know a few people that bought new PCs that paid extra to get Vista off and XP on their computers.
