    Hmm pretty fast dev of SP1 but I think they've already started with it at the 71xx builds of Win7...

    Windows Seven sp1 Details

    It's no secret that Microsoft has been hard at work to further improve Windows 7. According to many sources, the first service pack for Redmond's new OS is just around the corner. Today, all across the blogosphere, sites are reporting new details about the upcoming update to Microsoft's most user friendly OS to date. ITChuiko says that "according to sources at Microsoft, a preliminary version of SP1 will be in June 2010 and will be accessible only to testers, whereas the final version is expected by September 2010."

    ZDNet is reporting that, as standard with all service packs, SP1 will include all the patches and bug fixes that have been released since Windows 7's October debut. In addition, users can expect tweaks and fixes made under the hood, based on user feedback. The only "big" changes that will come with SP1 are USB 3.0 support, and according to InfoWorld, "enhancements to the Bluetooth and Wi-Fi stacks." This is said to continue making Windows 7 "the most easily configured version [of an OS] ever." ITChuiko also suggests that there may be "some entirely new features that should raise the popularity of this operating system in the business sector."

    ZDNet questions Microsoft's reasons for pushing SP1 so quickly. According to many analysts, it seems like the trend of businesses is to wait and see what happens after a new OS is introduced, before deploying it. Because of this, it's possible that Microsoft is aiming to get SP1 out the door as soon as possible. They want to send a message to businesses that, "hey, we're continuously supporting Windows 7, it's stable, and it's ready for the corporate world." why did my post end up I his post!!!!

    'Just around the corner'...gee...sounds like it is going to be released next week.

    Maybe its just me, but isnt that a little exaggerated when the actual release is in 9 solid months from now?

    And thats not even counting any possible delays...

    October is probably when it is roadmapped to become available on Windowsupdate , whereas the redistributable may be available in September. Either way, there becomes a stage when they'll still be in SP1 when they'll be looking at the horizon for what to include in SP2.

    Of course, all dates are target timeframes, and I know Microsoft won't be releasing it until they are completely happy with it. Releasing a service pack thats not forseeably fully polished would only harm their business further than what occurred with Vista. They will most likely come to a 'fully polished' stage before the stated roadmap time, whether they release it or hold on to it, only effectively adding tested fixes that arise between the finalised date and the roadmap date, is yet to be seen.

    I just hope with Windows 7 SP1 that MS will not block all of us that use modded bios or loaders.

    Windows 7 is just a vista service pack, so it works perfectly ok for now without sp1.
