Windows 7 may barely be settled-in on your hard disk drive but, already, Microsoft coders are beavering away at a major update.
A keen-eyed Windows blogger
has spotted a new registry key buried deep within Windows 7 that will allow installation of a new update, namely Service Pack 1. Now, we're not suggesting this will be ready for home consumption, if fact we'd give it another ten months to coincide with the product's anniversary before it is officially released.
Still, the key will allow external testers to install W7SP1 and, given the amount of public testing that happened with the core product, we reckon we'll be allowed to play with it long before the official release. The big question is what will the pack contain, apart from the usual existing updates and fixes that is? Some screen shots are already lurking in the darker corners of the Internet alongside some bizarre YouTube videos from last year, but show nothing surprising and Microsoft isn't talking.
Let us know what you'd like to see in Service Pack 1 and keep your eyes open and wait to play the 2010 version of the slowly-increasing-release-candidate-number-download-game.
