Microsoft rolls along with Windows 7 updates

We reported early last month that a public beta of Windows 7 Service Pack 1 (SP1) was on the way. Microsoft has stuck to that timetable and the public beta can now be downloaded.

"As Gavriella Schuster and I have mentioned in previous blogs, SP1 for Windows 7 does not contain any new features specific to Windows 7," said Microsoft's Brandon LeBlanc on Blogging Windows. "For Windows 7, SP1 is simply a combination of updates already available through Windows Update and additional hotfixes based on feedback by our customers and partners."

Although Leblanc states that no new features are slated for Windows 7, numerous rumors peg improved Bluetooth/Wi-Fi functionality and USB 3.0 support as being added to the mix.

You can download the public beta here.

"So, I think the same thing of the music industry. They can't say that they're losing money, you know what I'm saying. They just probably don't have the same surplus that they had." -- Wu-Tang Clan founder RZA
