Microsoft Releases Windows 7 SP1 Beta

Tablets aren’t the only stars of WDC 2010. Today, Microsoft released the first public beta of Windows 7 SP1 and Windows Server 2008 R2 SP1 (it’s a consolidated release). Although Microsoft warns that only IT pros need apply, it’s not preventing anyone with the “right qualifications” to grab the update after a brief registration process on the official Windows 7 SP1 download page over at TechNet. (I don’t have to spell it out for you, do I?)

What does the service pack have in store? According to OS maker, Windows 7 users will simply get a streamlined package of updates that have been released since the operating system launched with maybe a tweak or two thrown in. Windows Server 2008 users, on the other hand, have RemoteFX and Dynamic Memory, a Hyper-V virtualization-boosting tech, to look forward to.
