Windows 7 SP-1 RELEASED to OEM Partners – It’s coming!

For those already using Windows 7 this is no big deal as there is very little new and if you have been updating all along there will really be nothing of importance.  For those moving to Windows 7 this is good news as it will make the install go much faster.

It will be available to home users starting February 22, through the Microsoft Download Center and Windows Update.  If you have been keeping up to date, this update should be very quick.

Windows 7 updates deliver more bang for your buck

Product updates to get the most of out your Windows experience

Today, we’ve officially released Windows 7 SP1 to our OEM partners. We’ve said all along there’s no reason to wait for SP1, but with its official arrival, now there really is no better time to migrate. Windows 7 SP1 includes minor updates, including some made previously available through Windows Update. SP1 also includes client-side support for RemoteFX and Dynamic Memory, two new virtualization features enabled in Windows Server 2008 R2 SP1. You can read more about the desktop virtualization updates on the Windows Server Team blog and get the quick run-down on the SP1 timeline here.

If you’ve already begun your Windows 7 deployment, you should continue with your roll-out while doing an evaluation of SP1 in a test environment then update your images when you’re ready. You also can easily deploy SP1 to existing Windows 7 PCs through management tools such as System Center Configuration Manager and Windows Server Update Services.
