August 13, 2004 :: John Mulhern, ISC Technology Support
Windows XP Service Pack 2 (officially named "Windows XP Service
Pack 2 with Advanced Security Technologies") was released
on August 9th, 2004. Service Pack 2 is the latest and most significant
update to Microsoft's leading operating system.
Information Systems & Computing (ISC) will support Windows
XP Service Pack 2 for its clients, including off-campus students,
only on new PCs that ship with Windows XP Service Pack 2 pre-installed
or that have been automatically updated through Windows Update.
ISC strongly recommends that all other users adopt a "wait
and see" attitude, continuing to use previous versions of
Windows XP until after the initial bugs in Service Pack 2 are identified
