Windows 7 and Windows Server 2008 R2 RTM availability

Windows 7 and Windows Server 2008 R2 SP1 were released-to-manufacturing (RTM) on 9 February and will be made generally available on 22 February. Windows Server 2008 R2 will be taking advantage of this release to accelerate delivery of new features, mainly desktop virtualisation capabilities meeting increasing needs of customers – specifically: 

· RemoteFX leverages the power of virtualised graphics resources and advanced codecs to recreate the fidelity of hardware-assisted graphics acceleration, including support for 3D content and Windows Aero, on a remote user’s device.

· Dynamic Memory allows the allocation of a range of memory (min and max) to individual VMs, enabling the system to dynamically adjust the VM’s memory usage based on demand.

    And if you'd like to know how to move from a pre RTM version of Server 2008 R2 SP1 to a production version take a look at this:…/how-to-upgrade-remotefx-virtual-machines-from-beta-or-rc-builds-to-released-build.aspx

    Which will help you get there without any potentional loss of funcationality in your migration
