No plans for Windows 7 SP2

The Register is reporting an "exclusive":

Quote:
Sources close to Microsoft's sustained engineering team, which builds and releases service packs, have told The Register there are no plans for a second Windows 7 SP – breaking precedent on the normal cycle of updating Windows.

Instead, Microsoft will keep updating Windows 7 using patches released each month until support for Windows 7 comes to an end. That date is currently slated for 24 months after the most current SP – that’s SP1, which was released in February 2011 – and would put end of life at February 2013.

Somehow that date doesn't look right...

Seven is so good that it does not need a new service pack. It's a shame that Windows 8 beats 7 in performance benchmarks according to many review sites. Hope MS could provide an update that improves Windows 7 performance.

Here's how SP affects the product support. When a SP is issued the previous version is only supported for 24 Months. Since Windows 7 SP1 was issued in 2011, Windows 7 without SP1 will not be supported after 4/9/2013. For now Windows 7 SP1 will be supported until 2020 unless there is a SP2 and then SP1 will be supported for 24 Months after SP2 is released.

Microsoft will realise they will need to release a SP2 for Windows 7, when many Desktop users do not migrate to the Windows 8 operating system, and people start to forget to install individual updates released every month, and then complain to Microsoft about the performance and security issues found within their Windows 7 installation.

Win 7 will be like XP because business are using it and trust it. Win 7 will be around for a long time. I hate Win 8. Literally hate it. I have never felt that way about an operating system. I use Kubuntu most of the time now and I am no MicroSoft hater. I like a lot of things they are doing. Skydrive is great even though it's mostly a dropbox ripoff, and I like what they are doing with office online. I also really like the business feel to outlook.com, but Win 8 is terrible.
