Or rather, that they refuse to fix some of the deficiencies in 7. Like remembering window size/position/settings, ability to disable libraries, more flakey explorer.exe and a stack more...

Gosh... please dont flame me

What's wrong with the window size/position? What's wrong with explorer.exe?

Honestly not a whole lot, but that's not because the SP is bad; it just shows how good Windows 7 was in the first place.

It will bring your computer up to date with all of the latest security patches and performance enhancements. Some of those we're pushed to you via Windows Update and some were not.

There is a full list of improvements somewhere in this thread...

I'll be more excited when the SP1 integrated discs are available. For now, it will be nice to get my hands on the final code and give it a shot in a VM.

Save you a whole bunch of time updating on windows update after a clean install. Having a DVD with SP1 integrated into it, or even the full offline installer version of SP1, will save you from having to download and install hundreds of updates online though windows update.

That will add to the list of things being collected. Look back to post #26 for the blog on the Dynamic Memory feature for Hyper-V

I just restored a Vista laptop that came without any SPs. The 1gb of memory, 1.6ghz cpu, and slow dsl connection took 11hrs. and still saw more updates after both SPs went on. The first 113 updates and SP1 both took 90min. to complete.

The download of the full SP1 was the only fast item. SP2 was already downloaded in iso form for both 32bit and 64bit previously and put on a cd-r when that was first out saving even more time. Having them stashed away in case a fresh install is needed even with 7's SP1 will save and save again on time.

The only drawback is certain updates may be required to allow the SP to install properly. Things like the latest Windows installer and a few other items are first gathered right after seeing Windows activated as a requirement before any updates become available. Minor issue however.
