I'm going to re-install Windows in a day or so and then I'll add this.

Nope. Other than new virtualization stuff for Remote Desktop (RemoteFX).

Here is some info from the SP1 on the updates it includes, and some other information. It's from a slightly older SP1 version, but you can get an idea of what it includes.

Here's an up to date description: Download details: Documentation for Windows 7 and Windows Server 2008 R2 Service Pack 1 Beta (KB976932)

IDK about anyone else, but I'm more than a bit disappointed in the fact that no new features are being introduced.

Something new for audio/video editing? DVD authoring? I mean, come on. Movie Maker is worse than in Vista and DVD Maker is so shallow.

all that media/fun stuff is reserved for the windows live package.

microsoft think they can update faster if they remove it from the actual os - that's why there's not even an email client in 7.

so this beta patch is just a collection of the updates we've already got?

i'm underwhelmed.

...but in a way it's good - it shows there was nothing that really needed urgent fixing.

must have been due to all those beta and leak testers...

At least it'll simplify the Windows install process, won't have to dl and install the almost 40 updates after an install, I can live with that.
