Microsoft to release Windows 7 Service Pack 1 Beta in July | The Windows Club

(Sorry, this should have probably gone in Updates)
I guess if I install this BETA on my original Windows 7, it won't expire. Or, will I have to buy the SP1 version when it appears?
You don't buy service packs.

This is one service pack im not too bothered about, Windows 7 is doing just great without it, solid as a rock.

I don't think it will happen this time, SP1 is basically just a "update" package with all the updates that have already been released

I wonder if KB971033 will be hiding in there.

I agree, 7 is easily the best OS from Microsoft so far.
It would be nice if they'd address "Windows Explorer has stopped working" though.
I've tried the fixes posted on this forum, but the error still comes back with monotonous regularity

I have always been very excited by service packs, but not this time. As some of you have said Windows 7 does not need a service pack, because it is good as it is.

Only useful thing I can think of is that by slipstreaming SP1 to installation disc you'll get all the updates
