Open to MSDN subscribers and TechNet programs
Microsoft must feel as if it is closing in on getting Service Pack 3 for Windows XP right, as it has expanded its testing to include 15,000 more testers. Microsoft said that it will be offering Service Pack 3 for Windows XP to MSDN subscribers and members of its TechNet programs.
Many users are eager to get their hands on Service Pack 3, as it will be the first significant update to the aging Windows XP operating system in several years. While the focus of Service Pack 3 is clearly not new features, the bundling of all of the bug fixes and security updates will be welcomed by many.
According to various sources, Microsoft is still seeking feedback prior to a public Beta that will be scheduled at a later date. Service Pack 3 still appears to be on track for release early in 2008.
