Office and SharePoint Get Tweaked

Many IT pros wait for the first service pack before adopting new software. Well, for those individuals, the coast is clear when it comes to Office 2010 and SharePoint 2010, both of which just got their very first service packs.

Here's another bit of good news. Office 2010 users can transfer their hard drive-based licenses to Office 365, and use the same software. And some Office 365 plans allow organizations to add Office Web Apps, allowing access to files from wherever.

For those Office 2010 users who are current with updates, there's not all that much new with SP1 (besides a few new repairs).

SharePoint 2010 SP1 is much the same and is mostly a bundle of previously released fixes and updates. The only really new thing is that SharePoint can now work with Denali, the upcoming upgrade to SQL Server.
