Beta invites for Windows 7 and Windows Server 2008 R2 service pack arrive
As announced at Tech Ed 2010 in New Orleans a little more than a week ago, Invitations for the first beta of Windows 7 and Windows Server 2008 R2 Service Pack 1 (SP1) have reportedly begun arriving in potential testers' mailboxes.
The beta of SP1 is expected to begin in July, with the release to market some time in the fourth quarter.
According to the invitation, the beta download will be available in English, German, Japanese, French and Spanish, but all bug reports and feedback should be sent in English.
As Microsoft said back in March, SP1 will not contain any new features that are specific to Windows 7, but instead bring two big new features to the Virtual Desktop Infrastructure in Windows Server 2008 R2: RemoteFX and Dynamic Memory allocation for virtual machine deployments.
