SP1 Or SP2

Recommended Posts

SP2 isn't as necessary as some may think.

The same fixes that are required for SP2 are also released for SP1 if needed.

I have SP1 only and there are no security holes left over that can only be fixed by installing SP2, and I get all updates every time they are released.

A good antivirus/firewall combination will keep you protected just as well as having SP2 with the same combination.

SP2 adds other features, but it still seems to be aimed towards novice users who can't protect themselves properly. Like clicking on every popup they come across in hopes of winning the prize at the other end while, in reality, their getting infected.

More advanced users recognize the features in SP2 as being anything but urgent/needed.


Personally, I don't think I'll ever have SP2 or it's feature until Vista gets released. That's only because that OS will have SP2 features built in. :)

SP2 does affect you connection experience being that it limits the amount of connections that you can have open at one time. BitTorrent sucks with it being installed.

I agree.  For the advanced user, I dont really think SP2 is necessary, as long as you can still get the patches. 

However, its only a matter of time before Microsoft requires SP2 to get Updates.  I hate it when they do that.
