The Final Service Pack for SQL Server

Pedro Lopes announces the last service pack ever:

The 3rd and final Service Pack release for SQL Server 2016 is now available for download at the Microsoft Downloads site. This is also the last Service Pack for any SQL Server version, as previously announced in the Modern Servicing Model for SQL Server. Please note that registration is no longer required to download.

The cynic in me says “This is the final service pack ever, at least until they re-introduce them in five years under a slightly different name because people keep waiting for CU10 to drop before thinking about migrating to the latest version of the product.”
