Windows 7 and Windows Server 2008 R2 SP1 RTM Available in Q1 ‘2011, Microsoft Confirmed

In a wrap post, Windows 7 one-year anniversary, Rich Reynolds gave some insight into the Windows 7 momentum:

“Even with the recession, the PC market remains strong. There’re 1.2 billion PCs in the worldwide ecosystem and PC sales have rebounded with Windows 7 as a key driver. According to IDC, there was 4.15% global PC unit growth in 2009, with nearly 17% growth expected for 2010, and sustained growth continuing at a rate of nearly 13% in 2011. (IDC).

And we’re seeing some pretty powerful PCs on the market today for our business customers as a result of the collaboration we’ve had with our PC partners, such as Dell Latitude Z, Dell Vostro 3400, Lenovo Thinkpad x201 and ThinkPad T410s.”

And, that the final version Windows 7 and Windows Server 2008 R2 SP1 will be available in Q1 ‘2011. SP1 will include new virtualization features to Windows Server 2008 R2 (RemoteFX, Dynamic Memory) to provide a richer virtual desktop experience, while helping keeping TCO under control. And while Windows 7 customers will benefit from these enhancements, the Windows 7 SP1 will simply be a roll up of security updates.”
