Windows 7: Windows 7 SP1 Public Beta Released

Windows 7 Ultimate x64 SP1
 
 

A lot of the updates aren't ones that have been received yet thru WU.

It's been widely known this SP1 wouldn't give any major changes or new features since it's first announcement.

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...
I know--I have some apps from the Live Essentials. New Movie Maker and DVD Maker still suck though.

I actually prefer to run the old one from Vista on 7.

45-526 mb.

I shall not install the SP until it is final, but it is good to know that it doesn't include kb971033...so far.

That's what I got too, it must have removed a bunch of stuff because I've got an extra 4+ gb now.
Other than that I don't see anything obvious yet.

Before I read your size confirmation post, I assumed each patch weighting about 1Mb. As there are 472, according to the XLS list on Microsoft site, hey, my personal guesstimate of 472Mb was in a good range
