SP2 and SP3

I think there is a SP3 available for Windows XP users. What are the main features of Windows XP Service Pack 3. Is it necessary to load SP3?

The official version of SP3 for XP won't be out for another year or so. There is of an unofficial version that isn't made by microsoft, and is basically a roll-up patch (contains all critical post-SP2 patches).

So SP2 is the last official version. I asked this quiestion because I found in a site a reference to SP3. I was surprised a bit to know about SP3. As Vista is to be released soon I don't think I should go for SP3.

No. If it's released, it will be next year sometime.

I had not heard of SP3, my goodness not until next year? That's still some time off - is the un official sp3 worth getting?

No, because you can easily get all of the updates from Microsoft Update. You also run the risk of malware in third party programs.
