So... What are your thoughts on WinXP SP3?

I've been trying to decide whether or not doing the SP3 update is worth it. I was wondering if anyone else has done it and if they have had any issues. I've seen a few issues through my few minutes of research regarding AMD CPUs (mostly due to bad OS images loaded by OEM companies), and I've seena few places recommending that you uninstall IE7 and the lastest version of Firefox before you install SP3.

If you've done the SP3 update, how has your experience with it been? Is it something to worry about now? I know that it was originally available in the Windows Update as of May 10th of this year. I was wondering if they've worked out the kinks with the current ditributable package of it.

If you have any feedback, please chime in. It will help me decide if it is something I want to do to my PCs or not.

It doesn't matter if you agree or disagree... As long as I don't bore you and I spark a moment of thought, my goal is achieved.

I really didnt notice a diffence when I went to SP3. I think it was mainly security updates and things like that.
