Combat fraud and increase customer satisfaction

How many service packs do you need anyway? And how many times do you need them? Windows site Windows 98 Central reports on a dizzying dance Microsoft is performing by posting and pulling the NT 4.0 Service Pack 5 over and over again. First of all the service pack got posted "by accident" and then pulled. Shortly afterwards it got posted officially. And then the 128-bit version got pulled. It's not entirely clear what, if anything, is wrong with this version. WinCentral reports "complications," but also says that it's OK if you downloaded it before it got pulled, because it's perfectly stable. Microsoft apparently intends to put it back on May 19th, having fixed whatever it is that isn't broken. As we recall though, security issues were one major reason for SP 5 existing in the first place, so it may be that MS discovered it didn't get this quite right after all. ®
