    Windows 7 and Windows Server 2008 R2 Service Pack 1 (SP1) Beta
    Please Note: This early release of Windows 7 and Windows Server 2008 R2 SP1 Beta is not available for home users. The SP1 Beta does not provide new end-user features, and installation is not supported by Microsoft
    .

    Looks like MS is getting closer to a SP1 release with this beta offering. Anyone feeling ambitious?

    My favorite line: "The SP1 Beta does not provide new end-user features, and installation is not supported by Microsoft".

    I think that I will wait for the Windows Secrets Review. :-)

    Yes, definitely. I wouldn't even consider downloading this right now.
    I get a headache just thinking about it. I'm sure I'm not alone. LOL

    Note from Microsoft Windows 7 and Windows Server 2008 R2 SP1 Beta FAQ's:

    "Q: When will SP1 be released?
    A:
    Service Pack 1 will be released within the first half of calendar year 2011.

    Q. Can I upgrade from the beta builds to the final build of SP1?
    A.
    No. You will have to uninstall the Service Pack or do a clean install of Windows 7 or Windows Server 2008 R2."

    If someone really wants to test this it would be better in a VM than a production machine right now.
