Microsoft to release Windows 7 SP 1 Beta in July

In an opening-day keynote speech at Microsoft Corp.’s Tech•Ed 2010 North America conference, Bob Muglia, President of the company’s Server and Tools Division, announced that the Public beta of Service Pack 1 (SP1) for Windows Server 2008 R2 and Windows 7, would be coming by end of July.

The new virtualization tools in SP1 will help Windows Server 2008 R2 users prepare for cloud computing, Remote FX provides rich 3-D graphical experience for remote users, and Dynamic Memory enables more control to adjust memory usage without sacrificing performance.

The Service Pack 1 will also include a series of incremental updates, previously delivered through Windows Update, for both Windows Server and Windows 7 users.

Nothing spectacular should be expected of Windows 7 SP1!
