Microsoft doesn't care about their customers after they receive their money anyway.

Meh, I'm trying to download the Preview 6 of SP3. If this bloody thing screws up, I am sorry, but Ms just loses a Windows user...or so I say
what's the point in downloading a preview?
I mean thus far SP3 will probably just literally be a security rollup.

Is it just me, or is MS really incompetent? I'm glad I switched to Mac years ago.
and how are Mac simillarly not incompetant, do you honestly think that they get their updates out next day? TBH it's just that you hear about it less because people care less.

All Microsoft cares about right now is Vista. <_< We paid for XP too.
people are paying for Vista...
I somewhat doubt that everyone has been taken off the XP project, besides which support for XP is most likely continuing whilst Vista will probably be supported with those who stopped supporting windows 98 and windows NT 4 and windows 2000 earlier this year.

This isn't suprising. Remember SP5 for win2k? yeah, I was pissed about that.
I do remember people saying that there should be an SP5, and microsoft saying that they might deliver, but in the end, by the time it's development lifecycle stopped there were only enough updates to make a security rollup, not enough for a full on service pack.
