Windows 2000 SP3 - - IT'S OUT! OMG! I DON'T BELIEVE!
 
Yes, ladies and gents, the long awaited Windows 2000 Service Pack 3 is OUT!

Finally. Weighing in at a hefty 124 MB,this thing is no small potato! (That's about HALF the size of the ENTIRE win2k OS)

Perhaps the best fix is the one that KILLS THE NVIDIA REFRESH RATE BUG!

Here is the direct link for the Network Installer:

Here is a quote - www.osnews.com :

After several months of beta testing, the most important service pack ever issued for Windows 2000 is at last available for download. The Service Pack 3 (124 MB, German here) is a collection of bug fixes that addresses all the issues that were discovered since Windows 2000 shipped. This new Service Pack 3 also adds some new features like the ability to configure the middleware and an automatic updater.

Finally!

That's a big mozza ball to download on 56k though. argh.

I'm relatively sure the 2K and XP service packs (this and the one that isn't out) kill the refresh rate bug.
They also include a bunch of stuff that adds coolness, IMO
I'm all for it

Does anyone have any mirrors cause I'm getting 10kb/s d/l speeds on our T1 here @ wrk? Guess M$ srv's are taking an early beating....

Does anyone know how 2k fares against XP as far as game compatibility now that SP3 is out?

I was told you'll be able to install App Compatiblity Toolkit 2.5 on sp3.
That's all I could say.

I'll give it a couple of weeks to make sure. After NT4.0 SP2, I learned my lesson. Can not access the floppy drive more than once...wtf was up with that.
