Time to install SP1

For those of you who haven't already!

Quote:
Has it been that long already? Windows 7 SP1 was released almost two years ago. As a result of that release, Windows 7 RTM (with no service pack) will no longer be supported as of April 9th, 2013, following the standard Windows support lifecycle specifying that support ends 24 months after the release of a new service pack.

It is hard for me to understand why anybody would not have SP-1 already. Surly it has been offered a zillion times through Windows Update on everY legal system. Unless someone chooses not to installed it for what ever reason. I don't know of any good reason not to install the SP-1.

Another reason, people may not install Service Pack 1 is due to Windows Update issues, however that is usually the result of a illegal operating system or the user has corrupted the system somehow; I've seen many YouTube videos pointing out the so called 'advantages' of registry cleaners and performance boosting programs which are designed to speed up slow down Windows 7.

That means absolutely NOTHING for the user. As soon as the software is installed, it will work that way regardless of what MS wants to support it or not. I've installed it anyway long ago, but I don't really care about the support, Windows will work the very same way.


Oh! There IS a legitimate reason to NOT install services packs! In my work machine, as soon as I reboot to install SP1, it just crashes for half an hour, then reverts the changes and report some incomprehensible error, so it just don't works. The same with EVERY update. So I gave up, run on RTM forever and without any updates, I can live without them, and Windows seems it can too.

I mean that how Microsoft treats win xp so bad as if wants to get rid of it by not providing services like using newer ms office, newer ie etc. in short ''killing xp softly''! I know xp is outdated and vulnarable but the fact that many people use it! is this will be the same to win 7? I know everything will change but emmm....

I would assume there were still a large number of PCs whose OEM factory restore will not include SP1. I assume presume MS will still facilitate the automatic SP1 upgrade. I also think many people aren't that technically savvy to manually upgrade.
