    I suspect more to the point... if they release an SP4 then they would be locked into extending support by another 5 years.

    I can think of two things:

    1. This is a good thing. It will keep Microsoft's customers happy.
    2. Microsoft need not extend support every time they release a service pack. I think that they are the only software company in the world that does this and it has never made sense to me.
