Home » Microsoft » No Service Pack 2 For Windows 7

Perhaps serving as further proof that Microsoft is supremely confident in Windows 8 and expects nothing less than success, it’s being reported that Windows 7 will not see a second Service Pack.  It’s still unusual for Microsoft to stop after Service Pack 1 but over course of the last decade we have seen Service packs on the decline

Windows 2000 – Service Pack 4
Windows XP – Service Pack 3
Windows Vista – Service Pack 2
Windows 7 – Service Pack 1

It took three years for Microsoft to release an Service Pack 2 for Windows XP. Which was delayed might I add because of the blaster issue which affected so many people.  As of last month, it’s been three years since the release of Windows 7 in October 2009.

People familiar with the matter have hinted that Windows 8 could mark the end of service packs, as a similar strategy could be extended to all the other operating systems in Microsoft’s product family.  Service Packs are expensive and time consuming for Microsoft to develop and deploy.  IT Professionals then have to deal with the task of deploying them on large scale networks, and cleaning up the pieces.

Service Packs are handy because they contain numerous security and performance updates all rolled into one, saving IT managers and home consumers time when it comes to patching Windows and making sure they’re up to date on new systems.

Windows 7 users will have to update their operating systems every month until support for this particular version is no longer offered.  Which in my personal option will not be supported as long as XP which just never seems to go away.
