For business's it means it can be rolled out all in go without the need to patch one at a time it's would save MS tons of bandwidth to there update servers with the complete roll out than individual patches.
    According to your logic MS would have to release a service pack every couple of years or so throughout the mainstream and extended support phases of an OS release. That isn't feasible and has never occurred before.

    Vista only received 2 service packs, having a second SP for 7 a bit over 1.5 years won't make much of a difference considering it will be covered under mainstream support till 2015 and extended support till 2020.

    MS is discontinuing SP's entirely and won't be doing them for windows 8 or any future OS releases.

    There are 3rd party utilities available like autopatcher or this:

    to make updating easier.

    Who ever said "Typical Microsoft" it should have been followed by '/thread'
    Same old lousy/dirty practices. It would be worth turning heads if games today actually came out with a minimum DX11 requirement but oh yeah that ain't the case.

    Microsoft when will you learn
