Rats! That means I'll have to uninstall both my Lower Slobovian and Sumerian Language Packages! LOL!P.S. Word of caution. It requests that you uninstall any foreign language packs. It will not proceed before you do that.
Being that you verified what I had already read (no new features for 7), I'll wait until the regular release, it'll be smaller. But I wouldn't be surprised to see any updates that has been refused incorporated into the final SP.Here's a faster download link for the Windows 7 SP1 Beta from Softpedia. They've broken it down into 3 RAR files for the x64 and 2 RAR files for the x86 versions.
Much faster, probably because Softpedia has a lot more servers.
Windows 7 Service Pack 1 / Windows Server 2008 R2 Service Pack 1 Build 6.1.7601.16562 Beta: Free Download
NOTE: Microsoft already confirmed officially that Windows 7 SP1 will deliver no new features, while Windows Server 2008 R2 will evolve with such additions as RemoteFX and Dynamic Memory.
When I first downloaded Windows 7 Beta back in Feb 2009, (from what I could tell) Microsoft had already quit monitoring feedback.There are many of you that's here now that ran the RC of Windows 7. Was feedback required from everyone? I've read many of the older posts, there was no mention of it, but I'm curious as to whether it was required or not.
Sorry davehc, I didn't mean to misquote. You are right, it was in the letter, and BTW, I've seen that letter before, come to think of it, somewhere else on this forum." but davehc said something about participation is required (feedback or whatever), that's a bunch of bull to have to go through just to install a beta SP"
That was a quote from an MS Email, Catilley. The download then comes from a different source and the quote was referring to past participation, not future. A reward for services rendered, you could say.
If you download and install the SP, from any reliable/trusted source, there is no other participation required.
