Office 2007 (Apps) SP1

AHA!  Of course I was so frustrated yesterday I took the first SP1 with Office in the title, but yes there are two.  One is for the server products, another is for the normal applications.  This one does include fixes for pretty much every program in the package.  The download is over 200Mb.  A few people are reporting increased performance but I haven’t noticed it yet, I’ll get back to work and see how things go.

Office 2007 (servers) SP1 released

Filed under: Office 2007 — Tags: — frizbit @ 8:47 am

I just read that Office 2007 SP1 is out now.  I guess it really has been a year already.  I’ve been using it for 6 months and don’t really hate it.  I can’t say its great either, but then again I don’t like office suites in general.  (I’d rather be gaming)  I thought I’d check it out and see what they fixed.  I did a few quick searches, right from the Live Search box on microsoft.com.  Nothing came up.  All kinds of info for Exchange SP1, OneNote and InfoPath pages, etc.  I went over to technet and got about the same results.  I went right to the Office System section on technet, found the download and from there was able to find a page that had a link to a spreadsheet of the list of fixes.  No wonder they hid it so well.   It really only applies to the client/server products like Groove, SharePoint Server, Project, and Project Server.  Not that these aren’t all good products, but they aren’t what 90% of the office users out there use.  I suppose I shouldn’t have been expecting stability fixes (my install has been rock solid), or performace improvements (its probably just slow on Vista anyway 😉  ).  Still, it would have been nice to see something in there that positively impacted my experience using the product.
