Windows XP SP3 Rollout Delayed by Glitch

Oh, oh.  Stop downloading.  Although it appeared that Windows XP SP3 was set to go, we may have jumped the gun there.

The software maker said there is a "compatibility issue" between the XP service pack and Microsoft Dynamics Retail Management System, a retail chain management program for small and midsize businesses.

"In order to make sure customers have the best possible experience, we have decided to delay releasing Windows XP SP3 to Windows Update and Microsoft Download Center," the company said in a statement.

Naturally, if you don't have RMS, you're good to go.  But aside from the links in our earlier story, and other sites, you won't be able - at least for now - to be able to download directly from Microsoft.
