Alomst certainly - I would expect the Beta to start fairly soon (perhaps before Christmas) if for no other reason than to avoid having a clash with an inevitable early SP1 for Win8 <eg>)

Okay, I will look in the News forum to see if the SP2 Beta is available.

I've done a little web-trawling in the meantime, and I think I may have found the source of the so-called attribution - and it was dated April.

We're now 6 months and three releases later - it's still BS.

Don't hold your breath on SP-2

I'm with the others here...I'm not holding my breath on a service pack for Windows 7. I think Windows 7 is a pretty solid OS, about as solid as XP, maybe even better. Windows 7 is always fast and BSODs are exceedingly rare. If I do get a blue screen, it's usually on my company-issued laptop and every time it's been McAfee Host Intrusion Prevention that's been the guilty party.

Sure Microsoft has released a LOT of updates via Windows Update, but oftentimes those go into Internet Explorer or Office. A Windows service pack isn't going to cover IE or Office products, especially since IE is a removable component and in Europe and Korea, it's not even there by default.

If they do release SP-2, it's going to be nothing more than a glorified roll-up of patches that have been released over the last year or two. If anything, it would be nice to see them release one so I could download all the patches in one nice bundle, and if I re-image a machine, I can install the patches in one shot, rather than as individual items. Of course, that still leaves the IE and Office patches.

Microsoft has got a lot coming out this year...Windows 8, Windows Server 2012, Office 2013, SharePoint 2013 and Exchange 2013. Not to mention their new Surface tablets. It's a big year for them, so I doubt SP-2 for Windows 7 is a priority.

I've always assumed that the Office SPs serve the same function.

Aren't the IE patches included in the SPs?

Apart from IE9 (listed as a Windows update) I don't see any IE patches/updates listed in my "Installed Updates".

So far as I am aware there are no plans for a Service Pack 2 for Win 7 - and no plans at all for Service Packs for Windows 8.
Windows 8 will instead be serviced by means of cumulative updates.

Windows 7 (no service pack) end of support date
When will Windows 7 RTM support end? I think after end of support date, Windows will state my PC as not genuine (even Windows was activated in earlier time), black desktop and restart every hour.
