I know it would sure be nice to have a SP2 for Windows 7 or at least a Post SP1 Rollup Package or whatever they want to call it.
Anything would be better than the 200 or so, downloads after a clean or repair install of Windows 7 SP1.
I wish they would make rollup pack with the updates. Win XP there were a a few ways to slipstream the updates and several people made monthly update packs. It was nice to have an up to date disk to resinstall without having to spend a bunch of time at Windows Update. I found tool that slipstreams Windows 7 but updates aren't simple to obtain.
They are going to have to, Windows 10 would be quite a mess without it if Microsofts plans fail for it.
And in case of success there is still a need of upstreaming the OS, but perhaps its better to use revision numbers.
Maybe they will take notes from the apple and linux world, release a new disk once a few years to keep revenue and encourage late adapters.
