I was thinking about it but i dont see a reason to, i dont have any issues with SP2.

So are there any benefits of having SP3 over SP2, Or it just another MS Farce.

My understanding is that SP3 is more of a collection of all previous updates, hotfixes to SP2 so it's probably not going to make a big difference one way or the other.   There are a few new things, but nothing exciting imo.

It's not a major update like SP2 that added some big changes to the OS.
