Office 2007 Service Pack 1 Release to Web Tuesday 11th Dec

Next Tuesday, December 11th 2007, the Office System team here at Microsoft expects to announce the availability for download of the 2007 Microsoft® Office System Service Pack 1 (SP1). This is sooner than previously announced for the "release to web" when the target date was announced at the IT Forum in Europe earlier this year!

The 2007 Microsoft® Office System Service Pack 1 (SP1) reflects unceasing efforts by the Microsoft Office System team to address customer concerns. Nearly all of the improvements included in the 2007 Office System SP1 are in response to direct feedback from power users at large organizations or indirect feedback from home and office users through the Dr. Watson bug-reporting system.

By tapping these extensive customer-feedback channels, the Microsoft Office System team has targeted the issues that customers care about most. As a result, the 2007 Office System SP1 will deliver significant stability and performance improvements to the applications that home and office workers rely on every day.

The 2007 Office System SP1 will be critical service pack for a variety of reasons. It will eliminate many deployment barriers to deployment you may have in your environment, it will provide support for Windows Server 2008, and will provide critical fixes to products such as Project and Project Server.

Absolutely! Outlook 2007 is a dog compared to 2003 - speedwise.
I hope to christ they have dealt with several issues there.

BTW, XP SP3 is smokin!
I downloaded it from MSDN today and got it on several boxes, which showed immediate improvement.

Maybe you could clean up and delete some old emails (and large attachments)

Wonder if they fixed the issue in outlook where if you order your messages from oldest (at top) to newest (at the bottom) that when it starts it starts showing the message list at some random position instead of at thenewest message

I've been so caught up with XP SP3 and Vista SP1 I completely forgot about Office 2007 :P anyway, sounds good to me, look forward to grabbing it once it is out

I take it you mean Office 2003 SP3 ? ;)

No, I'm pretty sure he/she meant WinXP SP3 and Vista SP1. They're both in beta and have quite a buzz about them.
