The second Windows XP service pack will include a number of changes designed to allay security fears

A Microsoft executive has said the company will launch Service Pack 2 for Windows XP in December, months earlier than the company forecast on its Service Pack roadmap.
At the Citrix iForum in Florida on Tuesday, Microsoft's corporate vice president of content, Richard Kaplan, who is in charge of the Microsoft.com and Windows Update Web sites, told delegates that Windows XP SP2 would be available by the end of the year. The service pack was originally planned for this year, but had been put back to 2004. "

Well, now we know that Microsoft is feeling the heat from the growing number of security flaw-based lawsuits. The fear of lawsuits is probably keeping someone from releasing an FPS game where angry consumers track down and dispatch those at the top of the Microsoft pyramid :).
