Service Pack 1 for Windows 2008 R2 Now Available for Download

Just a quick note to remind everyone that Service Pack 1 for Windows 7 and Windows 2008 R2 has just now become available for download on TechNet & MSDN.

If you don’t have a TechNet or MSDN subscription you should see it on the Microsoft Download sites next Tuesday. [EDIT: Here is the download Link]

Be sure to check with each product group before installing this.  Obviously it is supported with the OS itself (clustering, Hyper-V, RDS, etc) but you should seek a direct support statement like the one the Exchange group published.

You should also validate your 3rd party applications.  You’ll note there may be some issues with VMware, for example…
