    I assume this is american time, so it will be probably late on in the day for us.

    For some reason, a lot of the news sites seem to have missed Microsoft's other announcement...

    Microsoft also used the service pack announcement to describe Windows Thin PC, a benefit for Software Assurance customers that will become available next year. Windows Thin PC is a special, locked-down version of Windows 7 designed to be used as a thin client. Unlike other thin clients, systems running Windows Thin PC will not need a virtual desktop access (VDA) license to access services provisioned using VDI desktops. In conjunction with RemoteFX, this should allow older PCs to obtain the full richness of the Windows 7 desktop experience. (Source)

    Good news for those of us with Exchange servers...

    Windows Server 2008 R2 SP1 general availability and what it means for Exchange
    Now that you might have seen the announcement for general availability of Windows 2008 R2 SP1, we wanted to get ahead of the inevitable question: "Is Exchange supported running on Windows Server 2008 R2 SP1?"

    We wanted to let you know that we've completed testing with Windows 2008 R2 SP1 and the following versions of Exchange are supported to run on Windows 2008 R2 SP1 (the RTM version of SP1):

    Exchange 2010 SP1
    Exchange 2010 RTM
    Exchange 2007 SP3

    Please note that Exchange 2007 was not supported to run on Windows 2008 R2 at all before Exchange 2007 SP3 release. (Source)

    The dozy idiots have forgotten to put the ISO for Enterprise SP1 x86 on TechNet. x64 is there, but no x86. It is on the VL download site though.
