    From MS:

    Last week, we received feedback from our corporate customers that they would
    like more time to put this temporary blocking mechanism into place. Based
    on that feedback, we have altered the delivery schedule of Windows XP SP2.
    The machines in your organization using Automatic Update will not receive
    Windows XP SP2 until Wednesday, August 25 - at the earliest - as long as
    those machines are running Windows XP Professional Edition.

    Here is a summary of the altered delivery schedule for Windows XP SP2:

            8/6 Release to manufacturing

            8/9 Release to
    -8245-9E368D3CDB5A&displaylang=en> Microsoft Download Center (full network
    installation package)

                    Release to MSDN subscription site (CD ISO image)

            8/10 Release to Automatic Update (for machines running
    pre-release versions of Windows XP SP2 only)

            8/16 Release to Software Update Services

            8/18 Release to Automatic Update for users running Windows XP
    Home Edition only

            8/25 Release to Automatic Update for all Windows XP users
    including those running Windows XP Professional Edition

                    Release to Windows Update for interactive user installations
