I'm curious as to whether the OEM will feature SATA drivers as slipstreaming the OS is just a pain in the arse.

Donnie has a good point, I'd hope they have finally added teh SATA drivers :S

Burnout :: other than meaning you don't need to install ~100 updates after installing a clean XP SP2 PC it tweaks a lot of settings in XP,and also adds new features to make it easier to talk to it from 2K8 server

some details here :: http://www.winsupersite.com/faq/xp_sp3.asp

It has huge ass performance boost. I've got the RC running on my laptop and its one heck of a breeze.

After installing the RC on my work laptop, I saw absolutely bugger-all difference. The only nice thing I can say, is that I shouldn't have to install 5000 patches to a clean SP2 installation.

As for slip-streaming, I just petitioned the boss to buy a USB-FDD. 20 and it's come in handy more times than I care to think since then.

I don't know how but, on my grandad's machine in system information it states he has SP3, however, if it hasn't been released i'm not sure how.

I've been running the leaked BETA for a while. No noticeable performance improvement, but XP kicks Vista arse anyway so who cares?
