In mid-March 2010, Microsoft started the discussion on the first service pack for Windows 7. While announcing that the successor of Windows Vista was poised to get nothing more than a minor upgrade with SP1, the Redmond company did indicate that new features would be introduced, but focused on Windows Server 2008 R2. Because they share the same core, Windows 7 and Windows Server 2008 R2 will receive a single service pack together
. However, based on the actual operating system, customers will be able to enjoy features such as RemoteFX and Dynamic Memory
, or not.
Both RemoteFX and Dynamic Memory are reserved for Windows Server 2008 R2 SP1, with Microsoft having yet to discuss the evolution of the Windows client. However, participants at next week’s TechEd
in North America will have a chance to attend no less than two sessions focused on Windows 7 SP1, or Windows Server 2008 R2 SP1, according to Microsoft.
