Windows 7 and Server 2008 R2 Service Pack 1

As you may already knew, the Service Pack 1 was already released for Windows Server 2008 R2 and Windows 7 clients as well.

I had a few discussions with the other IT people and asking me, why am I installing the SP1. Generally speaking, why I want to install from a disk that has the service pack in it already is because I wanted to keep my PC as updated as possible and instead of me doing an upgrade to a machine that I will update anyways, I’ll just start from an image that has the service pack – minus the head ache of updating one’s machine.


On the server side, I had a chance before to demo one of its feature the “Dynamic Memory” over a TechNet session here in Makati and if you are looking into Virtualization, you may want that feature – and its free with the update, why not yea?
