Windows XP Service Pack 3 Release Candidate

PC World - Microsoft Lets Everyone Try Windows XP SP3
Microsoft says it will post the release candidate of Windows XP Service Pack 3 to its download site tonight.
This is the self-extracting executable that contains the update package for Windows® XP Service Pack 3. Windows® XP Service Pack 3 (SP3) includes all previously released updates for the operating system. This update also includes a small number of new functionalities, which do not significantly change customers’ experience with the operating system.

This pre-release software is provided for testing purposes only. Microsoft does not recommend installing this software on primary or mission critical systems. Microsoft recommends that you have a backup of your data prior to installing any pre-release software.
(It might be available elsewhere on the Microsoft site in a smaller update download size.)

Good luck if you decide to give it a try.
