As was the case for its predecessor, Microsoft is not making Windows 7 customers wait for the first major upgrade in order to taste the evolution of the operating system.

Instead, the Redmond company is serving bits and pieces of Windows 7 Service Pack (SP1) ahead of the actual upgrade through Windows Update.

This is not really new for the software giant, as Windows Vista was treated the same.

In fact, some users might remember that Vista RTM was better and better, as Microsoft delivered multiple performance, stability, reliability and application compatibility refreshes through WU.

This is part of a strategy to reduce the relevancy of service packs in the context of Windows’ evolution.

Traditionally, SP1 has marked the maturity milestone for various Windows releases, including for Vista.

This catalyzed and fueled the tactic, especially for business users, to wait for the release of SP1 before they planned or started migration to a new Windows release.

Even some end users adopted this practice, and delayed upgrading to a new Windows OS until the platform had spent at least one year on the market, by which time SP1 was usually delivered.

Following the advent of Vista, Microsoft revealed that it intended to cut the customers’ reliance on major upgrades.

Thanks for the head up...the kb2272691 came to me with W.U., last august 25,2010...aswell the kb982110.

The version of the kb947821 System Update Readiness Tool is the august 2010 "v7" updated from the april 2010 version, always good to install.

Got the version v1 of the kb2028560 " new functionality and performance improvements for the graphics platform" dated june 09 2010...might install that v2 from august 24, 2010

Guess i'm ready to the Windows 7 SP1 by the half of 2011!

I'm not and will not install SP1 Beta Build 7601.16562.100603-1800 until their final release because it looks wiser to my eyes waiting what's might going on with the actual RTM release til then.

This is one of those "I know its a dumb question but........"

Given that I installed Windows 7 RTM late last year and have had almost no problems, should I take a chance on the SP1 Beta or just wait for the real deal?

If you read the JMH post from softpedia, you will see that there's more than that kb947821 to install properly before run the beta SP1.

If you want to test it, read it and install all it needs carefully/reboot your computer to make it fully ready!

Good luck and keep us in touch!

Yes I'm aware and have read it. I don't run the beta myself though.
