Windows 7 SP1 beta leaked online As has been the case with all service packs, whether in alpha or beta mode, a beta of the upcoming Windows 7 SP1 has been leaked on line, and is now circulating on torrent, P2P and warez sites.
Additionally, a beta of the Windows Server 2008 R2 has been leaked as well.

The SP1, as stated by Microsoft, will be mainly a rollup of already-released hotfixes.

Earlier in the month, Microsoft spokesperson Gavriella Schuster, said the Windows 7 Service Pack 1 official beta was set for a July launch.

She also explained the SP: "It will not contain any new features that are specific to Windows 7 itself. For Windows 7, SP1 will simply be the combination of updates already available through Windows Update and additional hotfixes based on feedback by our customers and partners. In other words, customers can feel confident about deploying Windows 7 now!"

Just yesterday, the software giant announced it was selling seven Windows 7 copies per second, with 150 million licenses sold in just 8 months.

whats the big deal they let you download it for free ? who does microsoft think the are claiming that someone leaked it OMFG whats with everyone you know if only their people had axcess to it then they leaked it and yes it will go viral asp. for all who bought their software .its a bloody update give us a break its not news worthy ..... most of us set our machines to update when ever posible ... everyone wants to point a finger at someone next it(they aka. microsoft) will claim its a rouge file with backdoors and that no one should update their machine with it or they will get a virus, sounds like them at best maybe I exspect more out of a company who is writing the code that all my personal info is stored on in the first place... ( maybe I'm in loolypop land) but cant they keep their boys under controll and maybe they wont release their stuff in the wild for all to get for free............

Haha...get that SP1 out quick so people who follow the "don't adopt until the first service pack is released" can feel warm and fuzzy.

Maybe I'm just cynical... =)
