Windows XP Service Pack 2 preview

I’ve been using the “preview version” of Windows XP Service Pack 2, and I must say that Microsoft is doing good with this update.  I do have a few complaints about their new download warnings, as it may turn off neophytes to downloading good software, but otherwise it’s a worthwhile update.

Of particular importance is that Internet Explorer now blocks all pop-ups by default, and it works much better than any pop-up blocker that I have used before.  This is great, because when the designer that controls over 90% of the web browser market blocks pop-ups by default, it’s going to send pop-up pimps packing.
