Microsoft Office and SharePoint 2010 SP1 coming later this year

After today's big announcement of Windows 7 SP1 coming later this month on February 22, 2010, Microsoft has just posted an update about the upcoming Office 2010 SP1 update.

Microsoft typically releases a service pack 12-18 months after a major release, and Office 2010 will be no exception. Consumers can expect a public release of Office 2010 SP1 between May and November of this year.

The upcoming release of Office 2010 and SharePoint 2010 SP1 will include all the previously released updates that are made available through Windows Update, and will include some minor updates. For consumers who keep updated on the Patch Tuesday releases, you are already enjoying some of the advantages of Office 2010 Service Pack 1.

Although Microsoft haven't announced any new features coming with SP1 to Office 2010, we can expect that they will include performance and stability enhancements to the software.

During Microsoft's second-quarter earnings report, the company reiterated that Office 2010 was the fastest selling version of Office in history, selling one copy every second. Office 2010 has already sold double what Office 2007 did, in the same time period since its launch. Microsoft also noticed that SharePoint 2010 have sold 100-million licenses so far, and is used by more than 17,000 consumers.

I stopped the MS merry-go-round with Office and switched over to Open Office last fall. Between using it and Thunderbird, I haven't missed Office one bit.

OpenOffice is free, but the price to pay is very slow performance, broken formatting upon saving, and its original developers already quit.

They forked it to LibreOffice. That's like making the situation worse for the files saved in OpenOffice. LibreOffice will definitely introduce features that OpenOffice will not support. Sort of like a lateral war.

For the meantime, there's Google Docs and Office Web Apps humming in the cloud, killing OpenOffice and LibreOffice slowly.
