Windows XP SP3 via WSUS now available

It looks as though the Service Pack 3 update was released to WSUS a couple of days ago:

Windows XP Service Pack 3 in WSUS

For some of our clients, this update will be held off for a bit longer yet as we have not had the chance to do a full range of testing.

So, when going through the WSUS console or SBS R2 console acknowledging those updates, keep that in mind for your clients before hitting the Approve button.

In our case, we will take one of the more advanced users and manually update their workstation/laptop before other users. They are usually quick to point out improvements or not and whether their Line of Business Apps get broken or have issues with the Service Pack.

Prior to that update being applied we will snapshot their workstation/laptop with ShadowProtect for that "just in case" fall back.
