sweet... thanks for the link.
question tho.. what exactly does RC mean? i know it stands for Release Candidate, as you said, Rev... but what does that mean?
and fyi Rev, your link to the overview is not correct.

Release candidate generally means it will be the same as the "final" version,unless any bugs,etc are found in it.
If any are found it moves into the next RC stage from RC1 to RC2 etc, until it is considered stable enough to make it final.
Software companies use different timescales to test an RC before they consider it stable.
BTW, overview link now fixed,thanks.

all bets are off...
Just read the overview. Sounds like a nice little improvement

This SPack will be good, hopefully it will fix the little niggling annoyances of 2003. Looks like a lot of XP SP2 features too, hopefully it doesnt cause too much of a problem, but at 380mb seems a little big.
Final should be released soon then...
