Windows 7 Service Pack 1

I heard today, from what I think is a trusted source  :), that Win 7 SP1 is being released on 22nd Feb 2011.


Microsoft are releasing Windows 7 Service pack 1 today 22 Feb 2011, it's going to be available from the link below, it should also come in as a Windows up-date soon.


I'll wait for the update. 
If any bugs, they may be fixed by then.     


That is wise Dusky.

I can see why people aren't going to rush to get Win 7 SP1, why bother putting the pack in if nothing is wrong with your system, and as they say "fools rush in".

Anyway this fool is forced to install SP1, I need to know all the ins and outs of applying it as I'm going to be putting it on a good number of systems over the next week or so.

The download took a long time for me, not my connection speed, but so many people seem to be downloading it that it's flooding the server.

The install took about 20 mins and so far everything seems perfect, though obviously I haven't had to chance to check everything in Windows yet, if I come across any problems I post it.

Attached are two images, one confirming the install and the other showing system properties also confirming SP1 is installed.
