Patch, service pack, sp1, update, Windows 7
Windows 7 has only been officially available for a little over three months now. It has become the fastest-selling operating system to date for Microsoft and its success has driven a significant jump in revenue and earnings for Microsoft.
Still, its not perfect. There will be vulnerabilities found, and Microsoft will issue patches for them. Eventually, Microsoft will develop a Service Pack to bundle the accumulated patches, as well as adding features and updating the operating system in general.
There have been a few rumors and rumblings hinting that Service Pack 1 (SP1) for Windows 7 may be in the early stages of development. At this point, its mere existence is a matter of speculation, which makes predicting what it might contain even less reliable. But, if you want to get started early on the debate over what Windows 7 SP1 might have in store, check out What to Expect from Microsoft Windows 7 SP1 from PCWorld.
