For those of you on Win7...
That don't want to upgrade to Win8, you now may be forced to.
The engineering team responsible for building and releasing service packs has reportedly been told there wonít be another service pack for Windows 7. It marks the first time in multiple releases that Microsoft wonít be issuing a second major update.
If you recall, Windows XP received three service packs during its run while Vista scored two major bundles. Itís unclear at this hour why Microsoft isnít planning a second service pack but it doesnít take a genius to make an educated guess.
Windows 7 was due for a second service pack any day now. Service packs are reportedly a pain for Microsoft to produce because they require a lot of time and effort to build. With Windows 8 primed for release, it seems as though Microsoft wanted to have everyone working on the new OS rather than lingering around on an older project.
