Will W7 RTM receive regular system updates?

Does anyone know if W7 RTM will receive updates and possible service packs in the future?

Considering it's the final version, yes.

It's the final version, so that'd be a yes.

Though it's "out" in the hands of OEM's, Technet/MSDN subscribers, etc., I don't know how regularly it will get updates before official public release in October, however. Assumably they'd still be more able to test things right now rather than rush updates out there.

I'm also personally not aware if it holds back some updates until you activate, but I don't think I recall ever doing an install and waiting to activate and not having all updates show up regardless.

I guess I misunderstand because it's an "evaluation copy" for testing purposes, but I guess you can't successfully test software without updates.

To my understanding the RTM is the final version and does not expire. So yes, it will receive all the updates and be gtg.

if you have watermark on desktop "Evaluation Copy" (or expire date), then you dont have unmodifyed RTM.
