    I'm not sure if I need this update or not, I'm running XP Home. From reading
    more about it at the WinUpdate site, it seems that XP Pro is what it's
    intended for. Am I wrong here, and do need to install it? Also, what does
    this Jet Pack4.0 do exactly?

    If you go to the windows update site and it says you need an update, you
    need it.

    There is an old adage that has been mentioned many times --- if it ain't broke,
    don't fix it. I have yet to have one Microsoft software design engineer or any
    other developer who can unequivocally say that a specific patch is needed in
    order for any single one of my computers to function. There is already too
    much dumbing-down in computers and the user has surrendered too much
    by following suit by dumbly allowing an outside party load sight unseen (or
    unknown) a length of code.

    Know where Jet Pack is used? A server. You running a Windows NT, 2000
    or 2003 Server, Curt?

    "So, Mr Slumpy you *really* are the perpetual comedian, aren't you ?" I
    threw back my head and roared with laughter as Curt continued:
    It enables you to get from home to work in less than 10 minutes, and you get
    to feel just like James Bond.

    Not entirely true.

  7. Not necessarily true _at all_. I am still running W2K SP2, and have
    successfully and safely ignored many of M$'s "updates" - WMP9 among
