Those who plan to upgrade to Windows 7 once Microsoft releases Service Pack 1
might just have to wait a little longer than previously imagined
. Although many are counting on Microsoft to deliver SP1 for Windows 7 and Windows Server 2008 R2 sometime before the year end, the
site does not quite agree.
A FAQ document on the site clearly states that “Service Pack 1 will be released within the first half of calendar year 2011.” Microsoft has been urging consumers, especially enterprise users, to not delay their upgrade plans until the release of SP1 as it will include “only minor updates.” Microsoft released a public beta of Service Pack 1 last week.
