Microsoft last provided a service pack for their Office 2007 suite of applications in early December 2007. Since then, they have been providing Office 2007 users with regular updates and patches, albeit available only through Windows Update or Office Update. It was more than about time for Microsoft to release a new service pack that would compile all patches released since Office 2007 Service Pack 1.
On November 20, 2008, Microsoft's Office Client marketing group informed their OEM customers that Microsoft would be making the 2007 Microsoft Office System Service Pack 2 (SP2) available to them in late May 2009. This article is based on that announcement, as well as recently obtained internal documents. Like our other exposes on Microsoft, we will be updating this article as and when we receive updated information, so be sure to check back often! More details at TechARP.

A LOT of folks I talk to complain about that ribbon bar. They really need to make it an option to go back to the old (or some variation thereof) menu system. I have found folks searching for older versions of Office still for sale, just to avoid that ribbon.
