It's more than you think, and not just for retail establishments either.
I'll add that even if it was just the retail establishment, that's a huge market that Microsoft cannot afford to lose.

I doubt they will. Even if most of them stay on XP, that's better than switching to OS X or a Linux distro, at least for Microsoft.

Also, slightly offtopic here, but does anybody feel that 7 SP1 might be one of the most minor service packs in Windows history? Not that that's a bad thing, mind you.

Does anyone have a complete picture of what all will be in this service pack?

Don't want to express an opinion until I know all the facts.

As far as Service packs go, this ones going to be pretty ho hum overall.

Most individually applicable and pertinent fixes will be available via WU anyway.

Prob not many more. Outside of retail and law enforcement, I don't know of that many users of the technology.

I just got an HP touch laptop. I like it on the laptop, but don't think it would be that useful on the desktop as the mouse is much closer than the screen. I'm not that fond of track pads and the touch means I don't need it that much. Nice for reading and for skulking around the forums. The screen pivots and folds flat-face up which is nice for reading.

If it only contained fixes for Touch related functionality it would not be a Service Pack. Don't fret there is going to be a lot more. The article in question just mentions one item that might be contained in the SP.

Do you use it for every application? Or just things like browsing the web?
