If you are still running Microsoft Windows XP Service Pack 2, then here is some bad news if you didn’t hear about this last year. From the 13th July 2010 Microsoft will be removing support. So this means no more security updates, hotfixes etc.
So now might be a good time to update to Service Pack 3, its only been out 2 years so might be nice to be an early adopter If you are feeling really adventurous you might want to consider moving with Microsoft Windows 7??
If your running XP SP2 on you embedded systems you have until Jan 2011 to do the necessary.
