Many, particularly when it comes to client versions of Windows, wait for the first service pack before feeling it's safe to move.
Well, your wait is almost over. Service Pack 1 for both Windows 7 and Windows Server 2008 is done and in the paws of OEMs. And if you're on TechNet or MSDN, you'll be able to download the pack this Wednesday.
So what's it all about? Not much for Windows 7 users besides a rollup of all previous fixes.
Windows Server 2008, on the other hand, gains a couple new virtual technologies.
One for Remote Desktop Services is called RemoteFX. In short, RemoteFX gives users connected to virtual desktop infrastructure (VDI) better graphics.
In other virt news, Hyper-V gains dynamic memory so that all your memory becomes part of one shared pool. The upshot gives users a more efficient use of memory and up to 40 percent VDI density.
