It seems that Microsoft is working hard on getting the first service pack for Windows 7 out the door. Today there have been plenty of rumors going around the web, hinting at what could be in the first SP1 for Windows 7. According to sources at Microsoft, a preliminary version of SP1 will be in June 2010 and will be accessible only to testers, whereas the final version is expected by September 2010.
So what will be in the first service pack released by the guys over at Redmond? Well for a start, all the patches and updates the Microsoft have released up to the release date will automatically be included in it and maybe the odd tweak here and there based on feedback, don’t expect many major UI changes, it will be more than likely under the hood stuff.
SP1 is also said to be bringing in new support for hardware, including support for USB 3.0 and improved Bluetooth support as well as support for Wi-Fi Stacks. However according to IT Chuiko,some entirely new features that should raise the popularity of this operating system in the business sector.
But really that’s about all we know at this stage, one thing we pretty much know for certain is that SP1 is on the way and reports have emerged that some build numbers have been spotted with SP1. But does Microsoft really need a service pack for Windows 7 already? I don’t think so, but perhaps Microsoft are pushing ahead with the first service pack for a reason.
Many businesses and companies regularly wait for the first service pack, or sometimes even the second before they decide to upgrade to a new operating system. Perhaps Microsoft is pushing ahead with SP1 to encourage these businesses to make the switch to Windows 7 as soon as possible?
