Ugh, this sucks. Microsoft has no plans for a second Windows 7 Service Pack

What a grotesque way of Microsoft attempting to force Windows 8 on us. One of these days I'll have to figure out how to integrate patches into an SP1 install because installing a zillion patches after reinstall is really painful. Tactics like this just make me dislike Windows 8 even more.

What you should do is make a system image, then once in a while, load it up, update, remake image, done.

Also this isn't anything new. DirectX 10 wasn't available for XP. Windows Me sucked balls. Windows 98 had a ton of things that Windows 95 probably couldn't support without pain.
