    By that time More than 75% of the world will be using Vista.
    What is the use of releasing it then.:confused:

    bcoz if they release SP3 now, then many ppl might drop their ideas to upgrade to Vista bcoz SP3 will definitely come with some extra stuffs, like SP2 came with Security centre ;)

    And after SP3 ppl will get a little trouble after installing a fresh XP with SP3 integrated, coz there r more than 50 updates available after SP2 :)

    The problem is, Autopatcher people now face trouble packaging a Full pack, cause the size has grown a lot. I fear Autopatcher will stop XP updates by 2007 depending upon the update sizes that release later on. Currently its around 200~ MB I guess, should become more than a CD by 2007 mid :(

    dont warry QM... AutoPatcher started a treand of Packing updates... we already have a major player as unofficial SP3 :)) so competition will push they to continue with it.. if they dont we will have any other package.. :)

    also about size.. day by day AutoPatcher releases are shifting to torrets... so if people can download GBs of data ;) with Torrents.. then why cant we download autopathcer ??
    __________
    well in a establishment where u have 50 / 60 PC running windows XP there SP3 is allways welcome over Vista... its not possible to some time go for a huge licensing right-a-way ... u need planing an funding... so in those area SP3 will allways be welcome before Vista.... :)

    What'z the big deal in size of autopatcher? If CD is not sufficient, put it into DVD! Making it available online also is not a bad idea.

  17. Hope it does not require stupid requirements(high end) and vista required.

    It is available online actually. Even though downloading huge packages may not be a problem for many, it sure is a big deal to the developer team at Neowin to keep track and lists of the slew of updates they need to pack. A DVD of AutoPatcher? Forget it, this isnt a joke :p

    This means, that Microsoft has got the hints that Vista is not gonna sell in the market.

    Hey dude...My quote was with reference to the discussion which is going towards the size of Autopatcher. Some are getting annoyed with the size. I just meant that if CD is not sufficient..well always there is a DVD!
    And regarding Autopatcher availability online..hehe I know that it is available online. Infact posts on it too. :)
