Improvements to the Way MessageBox works, in latest Service Pack for Windows 7, 8 and 8.1

No doubt you are all familiar with the way the 'System.Windows.Forms' MessageBox behaves in all versions of the .net framework.

For example you type this code:

MessageBox.Show("Please click OK.");

And you get this result:

With the upcoming service pack for Windows 7, 8 and 8.1, improvements to the System.Windows.Forms.dll mean that the style of messagebox will be altered slightly. The exact same code:

MessageBox.Show("Please click OK.");

Will produce this slightly altered dialog.

messagebox OK with implicit win 10 upgrade

The service pack is being automatically deployed during a forced reboot as soon as you finish reading this sentence.
