Windows 7: No plans for Windows 7 SP2

SP, SP, SP...... oh my goodness.

It's simply a delivery mechanism that rolls all the updates since the base RTM or previous SP release into a nice neat package. It's not as though MS is going to stop delivering updates.

I think, but am not certain, MS said the same of XP - and yet..... XP SP3
and perhaps the same for Vista, and yet Vista SP2

So, they have "no plans", and yet....... Win8 isn't getting rave reviews. In my mind, Win8 will suffer the same fate as Vista, for some of the same reasons, and MS will buckle under pressure to package updates into an SP (or 2). The IT folks in the business community will force MS to make their lives easier. The business administrators aren't going to retrain workers to use Win8 - that costs money. Win7 will benefit from Win8 development and there will be service packs - plural.

Anyway, that's how I see the world.

Let's just say Layback Bear's gesture is an oxymoron that only looks like it's saying something is number one.

I don't know about a win7 SP2, but I do know that support for win7 will not end in 2013, Microsoft has a policy that generally it is about 2 years after a version is 2 versions behind it will be supported. So basically win7 will be supported until windows 9 comes out, and is out 18-24 months.

I know most of the businesses I service their computers on refuse to take the plunge into anything but XP Pro, not to mention Microsoft just recently ended XP support, why would they end support for an OS that is years younger than XP who they ended support for this year.
