Windows 7 SP1 Screenshots Leaked

Earlier this week, we reported that testers can expect to get hands on the first service pack for Windows 7 this summer, with the final release happening in fall.

Such reports came from word that the big SP1 is already undergoing preliminary testing, and it seems that someone's already taken and posted screenshots of the install process.

Spanish Windows site Muy Windows (translated) has the screenshots of the Windows 7 SP1 install process.

There haven't been much word on what major changes, if any, to expect other than the inclusion of all patches and fixes released to date and the likely inclusion of USB 3.0 support.

    Did not the perfect OS according to some fan boys on this site, "Windows 7" just get released several months ago? A Vista SP3, I mean Windows 7 SP1 is coming out fast for such a flawless release.

    the quick service pack release is probably due to their need to get businesses to adopt win 7 since most wait till the first service pack to make the jump it makes sense to pump out the SP fast. Also this will signal the end for XP since one of the conditions of discontinuation have been met which is the first SP of Win 7. So this SP is more a adoption tool than a problem fix.

    Damn, I knew Windows would screw up another perfectly good OS! The SP may be good, but they just HAD to change the language. Now I'll never be able to navigate to my controle pannle! Sigh.

    I was a sucker and clicked too. I'm going to blame it on my mouse finger slipping and pretend it never happened.
