Well...................

SP1 (may) cause issues with software.... Maybe MS is just playing it safe?

That's..... different

I just double checked my Compatibility mode and I don't have "Windows 7" as a option - though I don't have SP1 installed either.

Interested to hear from other SP1 users.

It was the same with Vista when the Vista SP1 and SP2 came out.

Since Windows 7 is a older version of Windows than Windows 7 SP1, it will be listed in case a program is only compatible with Windows 7 and not Windows 7 SP1.

They always give the last version for compatibility when you have the latest one, don't they? Just how's it's done I believe. Running the SP1, so naturally they would have Win 7 pre SP1 for compatibility there.
