    Office XP SP-2 (XP SP-2)

    I haven't been here in a while so this may have already been discussed. Does anyone know why you can't get Office XP SP-2 on CD? Office 2000 SP-1 and SP-2 are available on CD and Office XP SP-1 is on CD, but not SP-2. Would be nice to have it in case....and not have to download 30MB again.

    Maybe they expect to release another one soon and figure it isn't worth pressing? Or that everyone is burning their own CDRs now?

    Anyway, according to the download page, it's "only" 15.4MB. <img src=/S/grin.gif border=0 alt=grin width=15 height=15>
