Microsoft have responded to a recent Windows 7 Service Pack 1 Release Candidate (or SP1 RC) leak by actually releasing it.
SP1 for Microsoft’s most popular Operating System brings plenty of bug fixes and enhancements.
Notable additions are Remote FX and incremental security updates and hot fixes.
Windows 7 SP1 RC can be downloaded via the Microsoft Website. If you are already participating in the Beta go to Windows update and install the RC.
The x86 iteration of the SP is a heavy 514.7MB with x64 weighing in at a staggering 865.4MB.
A DVD ISO disk image can also be obtained which contains the standalone update packages for the public RC.
Expect the servers to be hit hard so some links may appear broken but rest assured your itchy F5 finger will eventually lead to a download.
Make sure to uninstall the Beta before installing the RC.
