As I was watching some of the tweets today about the keynote address at TechEd North America I saw one that definitely caught my eye.

During his keynote speech Bob Muglia announced that the Public Beta of Windows 7 Service Pack 1 (SP1) will be available by the end of July.

I hear there were some pretty slick demos in this keynote but this is a tidbit that really grabs a Windows enthusiasts attention.

I will provide more info on this in a follow up posting but I just wanted to get this initial word out to everyone quickly.

Get your test systems ready to go!

Many thanks to @nathanm on Twitter who mentioned this in the tweet I caught sight of.
