Windows 7 Service Pack 2 release date

Anyone know the release date of Windows 7 Service Pack 2?
Are they release the beta or RC SP2 yet?

Timing is the key
Why would microsoft release Windows 7 SP2 when Windows 8 will be out in less than 3 months

Because I'm sick of Installing it after re-installs for customers ?

Your system specs and your profile both say you are running a non-actived build 7600 why are you worried about Service Pack 2 when you are not even running an up-to-date version which is build 7601?

You will probably get the same answers as in your last post.

Service Pack 2 will NOT contain any signifcant changes over the updates available from Windows Updates - historically, once the next version of Windows has been released, then advances in the surrent one are ended.

There is NO point is asking, as even when the product is in Beta, there is no fixed date.

I would suspect that teh public Beta will start fairly soon - but I wouldn.t expect it to go RTM until well after teh launch of Win8 - and probably not until the middle of next year

Horrible Rumour!

I've just read a comment from someone who claims to be "in the know".
They claimed that SP2 will force Metro onto Windows 7!
If true, it will mean the nightmare is getting worse!
Of course
this rumour is unverifiable.
I hope it was just random trolling.

OMG, the ZDNet forums just keep getting worse, every time they "improve them".
I can't link to the comment (by The Central Scrutinizer).
It is in the comments for this article:

I've never read so large a che=unk of BS in so small a post as that from Central Scrutinizer
an *unnamed* 'well-connected' source? - the janitor, probably.

While tehre's a *vague* possibility that Metro may be offered to Win7 in SP2, to say that it could be released at the same tome as Win8 is purest hogwash - the Beta for an SP is three months, with another 3 month from RTM to GA.

It ain't never gonna happen!

The simple answer to the question is Wait and see. Only Microsoft themselves can make the decision as to if and when Service Packs are released for their currently supported OSes, but as the release of Windows 8 is imminent I cannot see that they are going to release any Service Packs in the near future.

I think Windows 7 SP2 will be released in 2013. Anyone agree?

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.

Microsoft needs to release Service Pack 2
Just did a clean install this morning and there are nearly 90 updates to install, and this was just the first round of updates before the first reboot. Subsequent updates totaled over 100. Come on Microsoft, this is a bit ridiculous. Its past time to put all those updates into another service...
