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?

Probably internal, seeing he works for Microsoft NZ.

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?
