Default Re: Service pack 3?..Yeah or Nay?

I've had it on my laptop for awhile now and just recently updated my desktop with sp3. Nothing significant. I say download it. I don't think there is any reason why you should not.

I will agree with that. Although, not very significant decrease. My idle ram usage went from 20% to 19% after installing sp3

I've yet to see any problems because I'm using Vista.

Seriously though...don't just rely on one site. Research other sites and see if they all have the same verdict or not.
