Did you hear the latest from Microsoft? The software giant has started to roll out Windows 7 Service Pack 1 as an automatic update, never mind that Service Pack 1 was originally released a couple of years ago. Good thing that the Microsoft folks have decided to make this an automatic update instead of requiring users to install it manually using Windows Update, as you can never quite tell when a momentary lapse in concentration or a short memory could result in not installing the Service Pack 1, which could result in a system be compromised down the road.
Microsoft said as of today, “the installation will be fully automatic with no user action required for those who already have Automatic Update enabled. SP1 will be released gradually over the coming weeks to all customers on the RTM version of Windows 7.” Basically, that is what we love computers to move towards to – smarter software that requires less maintenance on the part of the consumer, without compromising on safety and security. Are you still using Windows 7 as your operating system of choice at this point in time, or have you already moved to the beauty that is Windows 8?
