Windows 7 was ushered in only two weeks ago, amidst much fanfare and great anticipation that Microsoft would finally be able to right all its Vista wrongs.
While consumers are still deciding if it is in fact the messiah OS, reports from Wzor – a website which eerily seemed to be able to provide nearly every early beta release – indicate that developers have been plugging away at Windows 7 Service Pack 1.
Microsoft obviously is tight lipped, but rumour states that we could be seeing a public beta testing for SP1 as early as January 2010. The service pack will undergo two beta releases and two RC versions before hitting RTM in summer 2010 and becoming an official end user update in the fall.
While bug reports are likely flying in on a daily basis, yet the question must be ask; what exactly does Microsoft intend to offer this shortly after release, that couldn’t be accomplished with the usual regular updates?
So now that Windows 7 has been officially released, users have had some time to fiddle and play around, did it live up to the hype? Are you happy with the new OS or if you have yet to upgrade whats holding you back?
