Well I have installed windows service pack three upon my Dell 9300 laptop. So far things have been so good. Really have not noticed any difference upon my current windows. Windows does not seem to be any slower nor any faster, than with service pack two installed. No apps so far have died, failed etc to run. Compared to Windows Vista which is a dog to run. I have been told by many people who actually run Vista that, the amount of problems associated, that going back to Windows XP is a godsend. Seems Apple is cashing in on Microsoft’s failure. Apple machine sales rose last quarter. Guess all those disillusioned people, who are either upgrading or buying for the first time, have decided to go mac. Only time will tell with Windows 7 arriving in 2010. Can Apple hurt Microsoft enough to finally be a force to be feared with.
