Comments from the Editor
==========================================================

 

Last week I mentioned SP2 for Windows XP. Microsoft has just released RC2 for this SP. If you are planning to upgrade, or if you want to improve your security, then you will want to begin testing out this new service pack. If you create applications used by others, then you may also want to verify that your applications run on this service pack. You can find more information from Microsoft at:

http://nl.internet.com/ct.html?rtr=on&s=1,yg0,1,14u4,b4y,jorm,i5r0

You can also attend a road show that covers the impact of this service pack on developers. For more on this, check out the following page on Destination .NET:

Until next week!
