The original Encarta 95 Encyclopaedia had a map of Turkey that included the label Kurdistan, an area the Kurdish people claim as their own. The Turks were deeply offended and Microsoft distributors in the country were arrested and questioned. The company quickly removed the reference to Kurdistan, which led to protests from its less lucrative Kurdish market.
Poor Microsoft! Just can't win!!!
Sure is a buncha lookin' for issues where none exist. At this point, I've deployed SP2 on a number of standalone machines and across several networks and haven't had a client bitch yet.

Indeed, I have it on 40+ computers now without a glitch. Some neat functionality that I've been hoping for too.
And if your machine develops problems following the install of SP2, it doesn't mean there's anything wrong with SP2; the problems could, and likely would, be the result of 3rd-party software you should have updated.
Locke - Nothing is certain in this world except you know what. If you're waiting till SP2 provides 100% correction of all problems and total prevention of new ones, you've got a long, long wait ahead of you.
I'm waiting, mainly because I want to see if there are any big problems common to many computers, like, for instance the one with SP1 which caused many computers (including mine) to s-l-o-o-o-w d-o-o-o-w-n. If, in a couple of months, I don't read of anything major, I'll go for it, but I'll order the CD, not go the download route.
Every computer is differently configured - you have program X and I have program Y and if program Z messes me up, that doesn't mean it'll mess you up.
Anyway, the old saying "post hoc, propter hoc" applies here - just because B happens after A, doesn't mean it happened because of A.
But the whole SP2 situation is interesting, and I'm following everything (that I can understand).
Well, Locke, you did say "I'm simply being cautious I don't installing (sic)anything on my computer without being certain that it won't cause any problems". Certainty is not usually a given with computers. . .
