Microsoft has announced that it will release the first service pack for Windows 7 at the end of July.The Vole clearly is trying to ditch the stigma attached to pre-service pack versions of its operating systems by understating its importance. Many enterprise users wait until the first service pack (SP1) before upgrading to Microsoft's latest and greatest OS. Downplaying the role of SP1 in selling Windows 7, Microsoft said that SP1 "will simply be the combination of updates already available through Windows Update and additional hotfixes" and that many organisations had already made the leap, without waiting for SP1.Microsoft also plans to release SP1 for its Windows Server 2008 R2 operating system at the same time, which will bring new functionality alongside security fixes and minor updates. The two headline features are RemoteFX, a package of enhancements to bring 3D capabilities to remote desktops, and Dynamic Memory, which according to the firm allows users to "adjust memory usage without sacrificing performance."
