The day is finally here – Microsoft have made SP1 Release Candidate for Windows 7 freely available for download.
This is the final beta download and according to the Microsoft schedule, SP1 will be ready and available for both Windows 7 and Windows Server 2008 in the first quarter of 2011.
Service packs for Microsoft operating systems are a great indication for the business market that many of the bugs and glitches with early code have been patched and sorted, meaning adoption becomes more viable. Windows 7 SP1 is a plethora of patches and hotfixes and doesn’t actually deliver any new features.
The Windows Server 2008 version however allows for Dynamic Memory (Microsoft Hyper V server) to dynamically distribute available physical memory between different virtual machines. This will be received positively as it will help to improve workload management. RemoteFX is also added to improve remote user experience.
