    But that's not entirely true.

    I just installed a XP machine a week a go and I forgot my CD of XP with SP3, since I had the CD for SP3  I decided to install an old copy (no SP) and then install SP3, guess what, SP3 requires SP1, in the end I waste some time downloading the  damn thing anyway.

    Slipstreaming can fix that, although it takes a great deal of time to determine which patches are needed and to download them. I think that alone is enough reason for Microsoft to make a SP4.
