Microsoft recently announced Service Pack 1 for Windows 7 and Server 2008 R2. They didn’t provide any dates, but they did say it was coming soon. There won’t be many new features, mostly bug fixes, but that’s what I’ve come to expect from service packs.
One thing that I’m looking forward to trying is the new RemoteFX remote desktop functionality in SP1 (pretty much the only new feature.) I don’t think I’ll have a lot of use for it myself since I mostly use remote desktop for administrative purposes, but I can see possibly using it for development work since the current remote desktop is a bit too sluggish for me to run Visual Studio on a regular basis. This may finally bring the potential of centralized computing to the masses.
