microsoft says no win7 sp2
Posted 06 November 2012 - 09:20 AM
for all of us sticking with windows 7 it looks like microsoft has no plans to put out an sp2 looks like they are trying to force us to windows 8. i read a post by another user from the maximum pc facebook page saying...
"They will have to when Windows 8 Tanks, like Vista.. I do not want my screen to look like a Elementary School Classroom."
i tend to agree. windows 7 is pretty good as it is. the update process is long after a re-install but for me its still better than 8.

I'd be happy if they could get all the dumb .Net patches into a single patch for each version. Having installed 4 servers in the past couple of days, the .Net patches kill me. Install .net, reboot, install 1st round of .net patches, reboot, install 2nd round of .net patches, reboot, install 3rd round of .net patches, reboot. What's that Windows Update, more .net patches. OK, install them and reboot .........

Windows 8, and no SP2 for Windows 7 is going to push a lot of people to Linux or Mac. If they want to buy new hardware they'll go Mac, if not they'll install Linux on existing hardware.
What is the big draw for SP2? I am perfectly happy with all 4 of my Windows 7 boxes as they are now. Am I missing something?

If you want an easier time installing fresh, slipstream the updates. Not as easy as it used to be, but certainly possible.
