Reminder: Service Pack 1 for Windows 7 and Windows Server 2008 R2

This is a quick reminder that the release-to-web of SP1 for Win7 and W2008 R2 will be tomorrow for anyone on a volume licensing deal, or MSDN/TechNet.  I think most people won’t be in a mad rush to deploy it, but those of us doing Hyper-V virtualisation will be very keen to get our hands on it.  As blogged previously there are a few changes under the covers that’ll impact non-Hyper-V folks but most of them won’t notice any difference other than a build number.

I’d expect the download to appear at around midday Redmond time which is 20:00 GMT or 21:00 CET, or in the following hour.  That seems to be when most big releases happen.
