Designing a Defense for Mobile Applications

After a couple of days of general and widespread access to the final but not announced Windows 2000 Service Pack 2 network code, Microsoft now has a slimline express version available. And still hasn't announced it.

As a matter of fact, Win2k SP1 currently seems to have billing in the "new downloads" section of the microsoft.com front page. No, we don't know why either. The express version of SP2, however, will be of interest to people who don't have a lot of bandwidth and/or don't want to use up 101 megs of hard disk real estate.

It allows you to perform a web install, so after the initial download it checks to see the components you require, and only installs them. That'll probably amount to something between 10 and 30 megs.

You can get the nice people at Microsoft to bounce you through into the express install version by clicking here. If you still want the huge stuff, then off you go to the links below. ®
