    That is a good point. Since so many people and businesses still use
    Windows XP _and_ since it *will* be supported through 2014 (albeit it in
    a minimal way, but at least with security patches), it is odd that
    Microsoft does not plan on issuing SP4 (or at least some sort of
    roll-up).

    To Dave and/or Rosanna:

    No, that question was not unreasonable at all. :)
