Windows XP 'Unofficial Service Pack 4' brings updates to Microsoft's obsolete OS

Quote:
Back in April, Microsoft finally pulled the plug on Windows XP, bringing an end to its support for the elderly OS. The company has since issued critical patches for XP - including one to address issues that prevented PCs from booting up, and a security patch for IE - but it has also stressed that these are the exceptions rather than the rule, and that routine support for the OS is no longer provided.

With around 25% of PCs still running Windows XP, that's a big issue for the millions of users whose systems are no longer receiving regular updates. It's a problem that a developer known as 'harkaz' is addressing, with the upcoming release of what he calls 'Unofficial Service Pack 4'.

Hi there
Some of us are still using W2003 server which is STILL in life and getting updates so backporting fixes from that system to an XP one shouldn't in theory be a mega problem - if that's what people like to do with their spare time.

I made W2003 run like a desktop -- to get a server to run as a desktop OS you need to do a few relatively easy things - then you've got a great desktop OS !!!.

How to convert your Windows Server 2003... to a Workstation!
