Microsoft encountered apparently a compatibility issue between Microsoft Dynamics Retail Management System (RMS) and the XP SP3 update. The problem even exists with the Vista SP1.
Microsoft plans to put filtering in place shortly to prevent Windows Update from offering both service packs to systems running Microsoft Dynamics RMS. Once filtering is in place, Microsoft is expecting to release Windows XP SP3 to the web.
MS is also working on a fix to solve the Microsoft Dynamics RMS for those of you who already deployed XP SP3.
Via this post from Microsoft's Chris Keroack.
We reported yesterday that links to download the XP SP3 update surfaced. These links are still live. I am waiting though until Microsoft gives their official go. I do not want to wreck my ultra-stable XP system.

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.
The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
