"Apparently" it was cancelled, and they're just doing updates now.

Strictly speaking it wasn't a rollup, but a collection of some updates, as well as new ones. Many weren't superceded though, unlike a true rollup.

Won't happen ever, MS is focused on Win 8/8.1/9 like they should be, an outdated OS won't get much but security updated now if even that after a while

MS is trying to get us to forget about W7...
W8 is their new baby... And they want it to have all the glory...

If W7 gets and SP2 (I welcome it).... No one will really think about 8....
W7 is darn near perfect as it stands now...
W8 is better performance wise, but we all know that there are some who can tolerate the new UI...

I love W8 too (got use to it fairly quickly & still learning new things about it)....

Either or is good for me...

I officially declare XP dead, to me...

Windows 7 doesn't really need a service pack because its pretty solid!

My house computers are totally off XP. Now they all have either Windows 7 or Windows 8. Windows XP is a good OS, but its very old and Windows 7 & 8 has so many better features in it!

Why does Win 7 need a SP for it already is perfect for an almost four year old OS.  Really cannot see what MS needs to add to Win 7 other then security updates.
