Has XP SP3 appeared on Windows Update yet? Due any minute (or maybe a few hours yet) if not!

I saw a user comment on Engadget about how SP3 Refresh 2 had put their PC into an endless reboot cycle - which is the same experience I had on a work PC.

I hope this issue doesn't resurface with the final release.  Proceed with caution?!?

i'm running it here, and it works fine. PC doesn't noticeably seem to be working better or worse, which for a Windows Update is probably good :)

got it via our MSDN sub though, not Windows Update

Im seeing all sorts of reports saying its out, its not, it is, its not....

Anyway, from Arstechnica :

As per the unofficial timeline, Windows XP Service Pack 3 (SP3) has been uploaded to Microsoft's servers. Currently, the final build is only available on the download.windowsupdate domain in the following languages: Chinese (Hong Kong), Czech, English, French, German (Deutsch), Hebrew, Japanese, Polish, Russian, Simplified (Chinese), Spanish, and Traditional Chinese. According to Microsoft TechNet, the 300MB+ x86 standalone installer (build 5512) will not be available today on the Microsoft Download Center nor on Windows Update.

Update from Ars...

Update

What originally looked like it was going to be a less complicated release than Vista SP1 has turned into a maelstrom of confusion for end-users. It's time to set the record straight: Windows XP SP3 is available for download from Microsoft, but it has not officially hit the Release to Web (RTW) milestone as was originally planned for today.

The delay only recently became evident when Microsoft spokesperson posted the following message on Microsoft TechNet: "In the last few days, we have uncovered a compatibility issue between Microsoft Dynamics Retail Management System (RMS) and both Windows XP SP3 and Windows Vista Service Pack 1 (SP1). In order to make sure customers have the best possible experience, we have decided to delay releasing Windows XP Service Pack 3 (SP3) to the web."

Having said that, if you are not running Microsoft Dynamics RMS, it is perfectly safe to install XP SP3 or Vista SP1 (which has also been pulled from automatic updates).

It's been available on Technet and MSDN for a few days already. Grab from there if you can, otherwise wait.

No problems, installed in five virtual machines and all running smoothly. Cokebot has been running SP3 for months during the beta and had no problems.

Just one word of warning with SP3 integrated - they didnt include the KB888111 patches!! And as of right now there isnt a patch for SP3 so all those lucky people with UAA based audio cards are out of luck (played around for hours with my spare comp yesterday before giving up, formatting again and installing Vista - formatting and installing XP SP2 now!)

Sorry, what is eOpen/MVLS ?

I can see the ISO images in my MSDN Account and have already downloaded and installed it

For Academic, Government and Corporate Open Licenses.

I can logon to the site and see my Volume License agreements and license keys.
I can download products, rather than have the media shipped out (typically a saving of $55 or so).

Now available via Windows Server Update Services (WSUS) and Microsoft Downloads.

So far so good, in regard to the few laptops that I've installed it on here at work.

Will be doing test, stand-alone installs before deploying to my WSUS groups.
