Well... Sp3 has a nasty side effect. You might remember that MS 
introduced a change that made desktops black for software that they 
considered as not original.

Sp2is still widely used and installed in low specs computers in 
developing countries where no licensed copies of MS exist (and where the 
use of unlicensed copies of software is not illegal). These computers 
are a part of OOo's market.

In any case, I do not think that SP2 and SP3 will be very different.
