The very final RTM bits of both Windows 7 Service Pack 1 and Windows Server 2008 R2 Service Pack 1 have managed to slip through and has landed into the wild just like the previous builds 7601.16537, 7601.16543 and 7601.16562. Build number for Windows 7 SP1 RTM is 7601.17514.win7sp1_rtm.101119-1850 which means that it was compiled on 19th November 2010.
As expected, Microsoft today at its Worldwide Partner Conference 2010 has announced the public availability of Windows 7 SP1 Beta, and Windows Server 2008 R2 SP1 Beta for users running the final RTM version of the respective operating systems.
The next version of Windows Home Server codename “Vail” has been leaked online. This version of WHS is based on Windows Server 2008 R2, unlike the previous version which was based on WS2003 code. As a result, UI has got a significant facelift and it now looks more or less like Windows 7 because of the “Desktop Experience” of WS2008R2, which is installed and enabled by default on WHS “Vail”.
Windows Server 2008 R2 is the next version of the Windows Server operating system from Microsoft, building on the features and capabilities set of the current Windows Server 2008 release version. Here are the screenshots from Windows Server 2008 R2 Enterprise x64 Release Candidate (Build 7100).
Here are some exclusive wallpapers for the upcoming Windows Server 2008 R2 aka Windows 7 Server internally. If you are like me testing a copy of Windows Server 2008 R2 then you would love to have these wallpapers on the desktop of your Server box!
