Agreed. And don't forget what SP2 did for XP.
Not so much actually....

My memories of SP2 weren't that great, the improvements only came if you slipstreamed the disk and did a repair/upgrade install. Otherwise, SP2 actually slowed down XP.

Remembering when all the RTM vs SP benchmarks showed up, it was't till SP3 that XP got back to the performance of XP RTM.

It was hit or miss then. Neither I nor anyone I personally know had issues.

Nah, its very reproduceable actually, NGOHQ did a performance comparison on it if i recall and found that clean or upgrade installs were the best way to install the service pack for best performance.

of course... that was before i discovered copying the entire boot drive to another disk, formatting and copying it back made windows XP boot in 5 seconds

I won't install it, it's simply not needed at this point. Vista and XP were another story however.

It made it a hell of a lot more secure, but it sure didn't increase performance any. Then again, SP2 was almost like a new operating system, like a 98SE. The benefits of XP SP2 largely overshadowed any performance reduction.
