Yikes — A Major Microsoft Goof with Service Pack 3

Just when you thought that those Microsoft programmers — you know, the ones all hopped up on caffeine and sugar from all those bottles of Pepsi consumed to wash down the Twinkies — couldn’t possibly top past blunders, we have the release of XP Service Pack 3. If you haven’t installed it yet, you may not want to do so without taking proper precautions. It seems that the new service pack disables support for many older file formats. Gee, they did it without warning anyone and without asking anyone. Whodda thunk? 🙂

All the information and links you need can be found in a blog post by my colleague Nerino Petro of the Wisconsin Bar Association.
