Microsoft to mail service pack CD free
Its good to the microsoft actually putting its money this way. Not sure whether this applies for US customers too. But hope so.
Now that's a service pack.
I've heard that in the US the only charge will be for shipping.
I've also read somewhere that MS was planning on having "take one" displays set up in Best Buys so the regular folks would hopefully grab one and install it, but I don't know if MS & BB ever reached an accord.
. . . and the .NET framework arrives on this CD (not the download everyone will get from windows update).
