What is the meaning of service pack (SP) ?!

A PERFECT ans...

A SP or a service pack is a collection of updates and fixes, called patches, for an operating system or a software program. Many of these patches are often released before the larger service pack, but the service pack allows for an easy, single installation.
Service packs also often include new features in addition to fixes.

 A service pack (in short SP) is a collection of updates, fixes, or enhancements to a software program delivered in the form of a single installable package. Companies often release a service pack when the number of individual patches to a given program reaches a certain (arbitrary) limit. Installing a service pack is easier and less error-prone than installing many individual patches, even more so when updating multiple computers over a network.
Service packs are usually numbered, and thus shortly referred to as SP1, SP2, SP3 etc.They may also bring, besides bug fixes, entirely new features, as is the case of SP2 of Windows XP.
