I wondered if anyone could point me in the direction of information out in the public domain.

Q: I'd like to know, for Microsoft, which operating system Service Packs are most in use.

For example: XP SP1 or XP SP2 or XP SP3 is most in use for Windows XP.

And I meant to add, this is so my team can test using the latest Service Pack on a Windows machine, and not just assume that most people are using that service pack :)

Thanks Nathan, but where did you get those numbers from?
Why no link to the source?

Interesting numbers... Im suprised that so many are using SP3 (thou I guess it does get forced down thru windows updates) but what are the other 40% using?
