Whether MS wants to roll out 7.8 or not, it still ultimately has to go through the carriers. Since carriers like for people to get new phones with service contracts attached, keeping WP7 alive is not in their best interest. So they may have collectively decided to either put insufficient resources toward 7.8 or to kill it altogether.
It has it's place in the low end market.

I don't think 7.8 is all that great of an update.

There's simply no reason this couldn't have been delivered to customers shortly after WP8 devices went on sale.

I dunno. You think? (Honest question) Personally, I think by this point it's a lost cause, with many already having got their upgrade, or will be getting it soon. Better for Microsoft just to focus on WP8, and getting updates for that out the door on time.

Downloaded the unbranded 7.8 update from NaviFirm Plus, flashed it to my Lumia 710 using the downloader.exe tool from XDA
I am now the proud owner of a WP7.8
Loving the new UI

That's what I did and it was definitely worth it.
