Windows 7 SP1 beta download goes public

If don't have a TechNet or MSDN subscription and you've been anxious to get the Windows 7 SP1 beta installed (though I'm not sure why you would be if your system is already up to date and you're not a system admin or developer), now's your chance. Grab your Windows Live ID and head on over to the Microsoft Eval Center and download the beta right now!

One important thing to remember is that this isn't the final SP1 code -- and there's a good chance you may have to uninstall this pre-release at some point down the road so that you can install the Windows 7 SP1 RTM.

Features-wise, there's not much going on in SP1 to get excited about, so if you're happy with the way your Windows 7 system is running you may as well hold off until the service pack is available via Windows Update.
