    Yes, here's that link to the SP2 CD order webpage in clickable form!

    Currently only English and German versions are available, but lots more languages Real Soon Now.

    Delivery time is alleged to be 4-6 weeks...

    Later... The order acknowledgement email says I should receive the CD "within 28 days"...

    Re: SP2 CD Orders (SP2)

    The postman delivered my SP2 CD a few minutes ago, which is a fraction over a fortnight since my order. Not bad!

    I am delighted to note that it contains, not just Windows XP Service Pack 2, but Windows XP Service Pack 2 <big>with Advanced Security Technologies</big> !!

    But nothing about "...which should have been in the product ages ago..."!

    PS Of course I actually downloaded and installed the 75 MB update just under a fortnight ago. But I know several people who (still!) don't have broadband...
