Yes, Windows 7 SP1 is on the horizon

Posted by Adrian Kingsley-Hughes @ 10:43 am

Holding out for SP1 before making the leap to Windows 7? Well, youíll be pleased to know that Service Pack 1 for Microsoftís latest OS is now on the horizon.

So, whatís likely to be in SP1? Top of the list will be all the patches and bug fixes that have been delivered to customers already. If youíre keeping up with patches than you already have these. On top of these patches and bug fixes will be tweaks and fixes based on feedback and telemetry received by Microsoft. Donít expect anything ground-breaking here, itíll mostly be under the hood tweaks.

SP1 will also bring with it support for new technologies. USB 3.0 is likely to be at the top of what is, admittedly, a short list.

How many people think that this is some huge marketing ploy to get more people into windows 7?

I only hope it's not because Windows 7 has some really big problems.

The SP1 branch development has been in the works for a awhile.

It's not because of any big 'serious' problems with 7

*Raises hand* it hasn't been out that long, how many updates have there been like 10? 7 has been good to me so i don't have a problem with it.
