    It's like a summer blockbuster. Sorta.


    Despite being officially on sale for less than two weeks, Windows 7's been done for months now. And those same Windows developers has been working on the next evolution of the OS. Yes, there will be a Windows 8, but before that there needs to be maintenance for all the current Windows users.


    While Microsoft hasn't said anything yet about the first Service Pack for Windows 7, it's an inevitability. Russian site Wzor has information that points to the first beta of Windows 7 SP1 hitting around January 2010. Allegedly, the release schedule for SP1 will include two betas and two release candidates.


    According to Neowin, Wzor believes that OEMs will have SP1 during the summer months and end users will be able to install it in the fall.


    The first service pack for any Windows OS is significant as that's when many IT departments and some users choose to take the plunge. This blog on InformationWeek urges those who want a new Windows to consider jumping sooner rather than later. Would you agree?

    Yup, as of now windows 7 is running on most rigs bug free but I think they published the news too early as their seems to be not much change/bug fixes that windows 7 requires :p
