I finally got Telkom to put a phone line in at home. Now that I’m finally able to connect to the internet on my home PC again, I thought I’d find a copy of XP SP2 to install on my pc. But so far the “techies” at work have told me its a BAAAAAAAAD idea. It aparently caused one of the PC’s at work to have so many problems that they had to re-install it, and they claim that its caused many hassles for other companies.
Since I didn’t really need to install it on my home PC till now, I haven’t been reading much about XP SP2’s stability… but their reports do worry me a bit. I say “a bit” because I tend to take their advice with a bag of salt since they’re not always known to the most skilled techie’s…. it once took them 3 days to realise that our work’s internet connection was down.
