I agree. I'm really fed up with Windows Update. It's rather annoying.

I think it a misprinted, should be SP2 Q3 2003 because SP2 now almost have full listing 1 year worth of updates compared to SP1 did. I have SP2 beta 1213, it weighted at 150Mb, around the same with SP1 setup. Microsoft does make mistakes on dates like it original claimed that the first beta of Longhorn will be out in 2004 but actually it will be out in end of October 2003.
