PocketPC Thoughts links to a PDA Guy post about Bluetooth in Windows XP Service Pack 2. I have the beta of SP2 running on my laptop, though I have not had a chance to check out RC1. I didn’t notice anything different about bluetooth connectivity under the beta of SP2, but I was still running the stack that came with my Belkin F8T003.
There are so many Windows Bluetooth stacks out there, and I was hoping that having One True Bluetooth Stack would make things easier, but if it does indeed not support networking, it is broken. Of course BlueZ rocks my Bluetooth-enabled world under Linux. It Just Works, and it rocks.
