I cannot find a forum for Windows 7. Yet it was released towards the end of October last year. This in mind. A couple of concise queries as follows..... Whether anyone in this forum knows of a service patch or two for Windows 7. If whether a forum, does, or about to exist for Windows 7. Reason for my request is that I have Windows XP SP3 Professional edition and that my laptop might have to undergo a reload. Also, the write up on Windows 7 looked good. Meanwhile. If anyone could help to this respect with a view of saving costs, then this would remain appreciated. Thanks in advance. Michael Feldman Ps. What I mean by costs is, that if a patch is available for Windows 7, then it remains sensible for one to 'bite the bullet' and go for the later version of Windows.
