Upgrade those RTM versions of Windows 7 and Server 2008 R2!

Windows 7 and Server 2008R2 have run so well, you may have forgotten all about applying the latest service pack :).  So here’s your friendly reminder (based on the Microsoft Service Pack Lifecycle Support Policy):

The release version of Windows 7 (i.e. no SP1) will not be supported after 4/9/2013.

The release version of Windows Server 2008 R2 (i.e. no SP1) will not be supported after 4/9/2013.

So this means that no new security patches will be released for RTM versions of these products after the April 2013 patch Tuesday cycle.
