Microsoft releases Windows 7 SP1 RC

Microsoft officially released an Service Pack - RC version of it's Windows 7, the Service Pack 1 Release Candidate. Am I saying it right? Anyway the version has this code name, windows6.1-KB976932. As with all Service Packs of all the different Windows OS, this one is expected to enhance several things on Microsoft's record breaking, Windows 7 OS. These enhancements include Remote FX and "many incremental updates to the platform". 

Microsoft's purpose of releasing Service Packs is to increase the performance, security, and speed of their OS-es and this one is not excluded from that. Since this is an RC (Release Candidate) version, it should be a stable version already, but as with other software updates whenever it's not a final version of the update then, "install at your own risk.".

The SP update is available, as always, in both 32bit and 64bit of Win7. The size of the update is 865.4MB for the 64bit and 514.7MB for the 32bit. Get the update from Microsoft's download center.
