We've tried some of the pre-release patches on our WINXP "mule" at the office today... 2 problems - one blue and one black - screens that is -
screens-o-death. The black screen event blew away the file allocation table - 100% "poof-gone".
Those who can - please do a system image backup before tryin' this at home kids.
Why can't they (MS) test these things more thoroughly - practically criminal, incompetence or negligence - I know not which.
Anyway here's a link to the advance notification most MSCE's have access to (it's public access tho') - you may wish to bookmark it or add the
address URL to your favs to keep up on what's next security-wise.
