After reading this helpful review of Windows XP SP2, I decided to start installing it on my everyday-use computers. So far, I'm impressed. This is no minor update, and the security-related changes are promising. Microsoft is now turning on automatic updates and the Windows firewall by default, and the Security Center nags about virus protection if you don't have it installed. There's even a pop-up blocker built into IE.
So can we all finally agree that, for once, Microsoft has done The Right Thing with Windows XP Service Pack 2? Discuss.
