Default Windows 7 SP1 Hitting February 22 (or Feb. 16)

Quote:
SP1 is almost here.

If you've been itching to give your install of Windows 7 a freshening, then you'll get yours in a week's time. Microsoft last week revealed that it has handed off the release to manufacturing build of Windows 7 and Windows Server 2008 R2 Service Pack 1 (SP1).

See the full details in the blog post below:

Today we officially handed off the final release (RTM) of Windows 7 and Windows Server 2008 R2 Service Pack 1 (SP1) to our OEM partners. On February 16th Windows 7 and Windows Server 2008 R2 SP1 will be available for MSDN and TechNet Subscribers as well as Volume License customers. On February 22nd, Windows 7 and Windows Server 2008 R2 SP1 will become generally available for folks to download via the Microsoft Download Center and available on Windows Update.

For Windows 7, SP1 will help keep your PCs well supported by delivering ongoing updates, many of which have been made previously available through Windows Update. It also includes client-side support for RemoteFX and Dynamic Memory which are two new virtualization features enabled in Windows Server 2008 R2 SP1

Seeing as it's just all the updates so far, bundled, I don't think I'll bother downloading until I next reinstall (which if I get an SSD will be soon).
