the cool thing about the sp2 is that if you have the athlon 64 (ME!) it activates the integrated firewall and security stuff.... (supposedly)

nope. the p4 is 32bit only, which makes it somewhat limited as 64bit apps. come out. but then thats why intel started concentrating on the Itanium, which is a 64bit processor out for workstations right now, but theyre working on a desktop version, and it'll probably be really expensive like most intel processors are. thats why i got the athlon 64

Yeah; has worked perfectly for me. Even the Beta months before it was released worked perfectly for me.
