Last I heard sp4 was NOT new.  And this is typical of all software 
companies not just MS. If something needs to be fixed ASAP and you cant 
figure it out, disable it and work on it (email merge in Open Office, 
some ACPI functions on 2.4.23, ect.) Its not just MS and im not a MS 
lover by any means, but try and be reasonable and fair instead of just 
company bashing.
