Re: [WIN7] No Service Pack 2

I agree Hall See Profile. Most OS SP's don't include new features. As you said, XP did, but I think that is the only exception. My reason for that as a potential "answer" to my "What is a Service Pack" question was just that: A potential answer. Microsoft could include new features of the OS in a SP, but they have not done so (except as noted in XP).

Which is why they are good as a "one stop install of security updates" which in my mind boils down to installing one big patch instead of 100's of little ones.

Maybe they are planning on selling SP2. Does anyone remember when they did that before? It was called Win98 SE...

I'm trying to recall if Win95 with USB support was a service pack or an upgrade that was purchased...

Only Win95 OEM versions supported USB. I could have sworn there was a work-around or hack that enabled it on non-OEM versions though.
