Microsoft Office 2007 Service Pack 1 has finally been released - sort of - and can be downloaded from the Microsoft download website. The links are already up and it is only a matter of time when the links do not point to an "Ups sorry link not found message" but the real download link of the Office 2007 Service Pack 1.
I'm not sure why Microsoft decided to create the links first and wait with the page creation that those links lead to but it surely is annoying. The only link that is currently working is the Office Update link on the left side of the download center which requires a genuine Office 2007. The download links are not working right now.
Lets see what Microsoft has to say about the Service Pack 1 and the benefits for home users and businesses found in the Microsoft Office 2007 Service Pack 1 Whitepaper.
Here are my top picks that I think really make it worth to install the Service Pack 1 for Microsoft Office:
Here are the direct links to the Service Pack 1 downloads, as mentioned above they are not active yet but will be later today. Update: We had to remove some links as they were not available anymore.
Update 2: Microsoft released the second and third service pack for Office 2007 in the meantime. Check out our review of the third Service Pack for Office 2007 here.
Update 3: Office 2007 support ended officially on October 10, 2017. The software continues to work, but Microsoft won't release security updates or other updates for it anymore (with the possibility of exceptions).
