Rumour: Windows 7 SP1 Beta to Be Released in January 2010
By on November 2nd, 2009

Windows-7-Service-Pack-1 Windows 7 is out. But, that doesn’t mean that Microsoft can start relaxing. A lot of corporates tend to wait for the first service pack before upgrading to the latest Windows operating system. So, it’s no wonder that Microsoft likes to start working on the service pack, immediately after finishing an Operating system.

Wzor.net, which became notorious for leaking Windows 7 internal builds, is now reporting that Microsoft is planning on releasing the first beta of Windows 7 SP1 in January, 2010. If this is indeed true, then it would mean a gap of about 6 months between the RTM (which was finalised on July 22nd, 2009) and the service pack. This may appear to be too soon, but keep in mind that Windows 7 SP1 has already been spotted in the wild.

According to Wzor, Microsoft plans on releasing two beta builds and two release candidate (RC) builds for Windows 7 Service Pack 1. Windows 7 SP1 should be ready for OEMs by the summer (June-August) and would be available to end users by autumn (September-November).
