Today Microsoft have RTM’d both the Windows 7 and Windows Server 2008 R2 SP1 builds.
Here is what Microsoft posted on their blog:
Today we officially handed off the final release (RTM) of Windows 7 and Windows Server 2008 R2 Service Pack 1 (SP1) to our OEM partners. On February 16th Windows 7 and Windows Server 2008 R2 SP1 will be available for MSDN and TechNet Subscribers as well as Volume License customers. On February 22nd, Windows 7 and Windows Server 2008 R2 SP1 will become generally available for folks to download via the Microsoft Download Center and available on Windows Update.
For Windows 7, SP1 will help keep your PCs well supported by delivering ongoing updates, many of which have been made previously available through Windows Update. It also includes client-side support for RemoteFX and Dynamic Memory which are two new virtualization features enabled in Windows Server 2008 R2 SP1. Read more about those updates here from the Windows Server Team.
I’ve been using the SP1 beta for a number of months now and haven’t had any problems, so I will be updating to the final release when its available. I wonder how the 2008 R2 SP1 will affect the Windows Home Server 2011 RC?
