Microsoft delays auto delivery of XP SP2 to corporate users

Microsoft delays auto delivery of XP SP2 to corporate users "Responding to customer complaints, Microsoft Monday said it would delay the automatic rollout of Windows XP Service Pack 2 to corporate users until the end of the month.
The company sent a memo to its corporate customers saying the delay was in response to feedback from those customers who said they need more time to install a registry key on desktops that will block the automatic delivery of XP SP2. Users want to block the automatic installation of the service pack so they can have adequate time to test their applications against security changes in XP SP2.

Also on Monday, Microsoft posted a list of nearly 230 applications, including versions of BizTalk, Office and Outlook, that "may behave differently after you install Windows XP SP2."
