If you followed Microsoft’s recent earnings, you saw that Office 2010 and SharePoint 2010 have experienced double-digit growth since the May 2010 launch. Office 2010 is now the fastest-selling customer version of Office in history, with license sales over 50% ahead of Office 2007 in the same time period post-launch. With today’s news from the Windows team announcing the availability of the Windows 7 Service Pack (SP) 1 later this month, some of you may be wondering when the Office 2010 and SharePoint 2010 SP1 will be available for download. Microsoft typically releases a Service Pack 12 to 18 months after a product is launched and you can expect that same timeframe for Office and SharePoint. The upcoming Office and SharePoint SP1 will consist of minor updates, including all previously released public updates. For customers that stay current, there’s no need to wait for SP1 to deploy.
