Windows 7 SP1 Leaks to the Internet in Early Form
The reports that Microsoft will soon deliver the first service packs of Windows 7 and Windows Server 2008 R2 seem likely to be true, judging by a recently leaked version of Windows 7 Service Pack 1.
Service packs provide Microsoft with the opportunity to package together bug fixes and security fixes (which have typically been previously delivered piece-wise to consumers over Windows Update). They also provide a place for Microsoft to deliver new content. As Microsoft's retail releases come less frequently than those of its chief competitor Apple, Service Packs are crucial to Microsoft's OSs having a healthy lifecycle.
The recently leaked build has the id 6.1.7601.16537.amd64fre.win7.100327-0053, which indicates that it was compiled on March 27 on an AMD 64-bit processor. The build is easy to find on torrent sites and is a quick install, but it has not yet been determined whether it contains fully working versions of Windows 7 SP1's biggest expected improvements -- USB 3.0 support and refined versions of Bluetooth and Wi-Fi.
