Then you're in for a surprise. Security patches for years to come.

(Not that security isn't already good, it's just that people will always be trying to hack it and find problems. Believe me they will)

RTM=Released To Manufacturers The only thing different about the RTM downloads seen for TechNet/MSDN subscribers is the lack of the optical media unless ordering the backup disk to be shipped on the 22nd. Release means released to the manufacturing for pressing to disk.

GP is General Public Release. This is the version that one will buy from MS, or wherever else.

In that case we might as well say GP = RTM

Its a good thing. MS has been shown to be the best OS company in reference to exploit to patch time.

Meaning, how fast they patch an exploit from when its reported to them.

EVERY OS has security flaws, so id rather see patches that fix them than none at all.

Of course. I never meant security updates were a bad idea. I am only answering the question, "What will future updates include?".

Any new version will still need time and eventually see the service packs that come out later. One good thing seen with Vista apart from XP by MS there was not wasting time releasing the second service pack in 2yrs. time where XP's SP2 was a 3yr. wait showing they shaved a full year off of the time!

(I guess they needed to get something in gear for a change! )

The only reason service packs came out so fast for Vista is because it had such a bad rep (because so few people actually liked using it with all of its problems). I doubt that any service packs will come so soon for Windows 7 because it is already highly polished.

Or the service packs will be like, 4 MB.
