I've heard so many bad things about SP2 I was wondering if I should let my OS be updated from SP1. I just did a fresh install and figure this would be the time to do it if I'm going to do it at all. What are your opinions?
"Some" people have experienced slow downs and crashes with service pack 2. The biggest complaints I know of are from gamers-SP2 doesn't play well with many games. My personal experience showed it not playing well with Grand Theft Auto Vice City. It causes the copy protection to kick in (details for another post). The only way I can run the game is in win 98 compadability mode.
I have no problems with SP-2, and I believe most games/programs have patches or updates if there is a compatability problem.

So I got me a pen and paper And I made up my own little sign</pre><p></font color=red>
Upgrade from very old SP1a installation = lots of problems
Upgrade from fairly new SP1a installation = perfect
Clean install = perfect
repair install on 3yr old SP0 installation = ok except for files sharing. Something is wrong with the permissions, I can only share folders on C:
And of course the several drivers and apps needed reinstalled. A clean install would be nice but I am doing this for free and they have important personal documents scattered all over the place and software with missing installation discs.
