Yup, the time has come. Service Pack 1 has been released for both Windows Server2011-02-23 21h47_49 2008 R2 and Windows 7. It is available on Microsoft’s download site. It will be distributed through Windows Update as a mandatory update over time. But if you are like me and want a hard copy of the installer for yourself, feel free to visit this site for the direct link. Be prepared to go through a Windows Validation just to get to the ‘final’ download location. Microsoft says the install for SP1 should take about 30 minutes.
