Just incase some of you missed this:
SP1 for Windows 7 and Server 2008 R2 will be out on the 22nd Febuary, and for you lucky TechNet and MSDN subscriptions you get it on 16th Feb!...
All Credit and news source to: Neowin.net - Windows 7 SP1 confirmed for Feb 22nd release
I assume this is american time, so it will be probably late on in the day for us.
Good old Technet sub!
Perfect timing for Feb half term
Nice use of the TechNet Sub now i've finished playing with the recently added SBS2011
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)
And me with a bunch of servers that need to be installed this week.
wonder if they will also have sp1 integrated isos up on technet?
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.
