Windows XP SP2 arrives for the masses today

The long-awaited Windows XP SP2 is due to hit the main Windows Update page today. Of course, if you just bought a computer or were part of the beta program, then you've probably already got the RTM version of the SP.

There are lots of security updates included in the service pack, including network port restrictions and an on-by-default firewall. Microsoft seems serious about security this time.

However, there doesn't seem to be a Japanese version available yet. So far only English, German, and Korean are ready for release. 272Mb is a big download only to find out that the SP doesn't work on Japanese systems.
