Service Pack 1 for Microsoft Office 2010 is a software update patch for the popular productivity suite.

One truth about modern software is that it is constantly being updated. If you buy a license today, you should plan on dealing with regular updates during the useful life of the program. This couldn't be more true than with Microsoft's products. Microsoft continually tweaks and perfects their software until they are ready to release something completely new. Microsoft Office 2010 is their newest update recipient, which has received a major service pack to take care of a few lagging issues.

Service Pack 1 centers mostly around bringing the software suite into line with Microsoft's latest releases. The big selling point of this patch is bringing Outlook in line with Office 365, which has become a fairly major issue for those who regularly use Outlook. There's also a lot of work done to make sure that OneNote can sync with the now-ubiquitous SkyDrive, further blurring the lines between the older releases and the new product.

There's also been a lot of work done here to fix minor technical bugs. There are too many to list for a simple review, but rest assured that some of the things that have bugged you about the 2010 release are finally being cared for. While there are definitely some issues with how large this update file is and how long it will take you to apply, you should definitely make sure you update your Microsoft Office suite with this service pack.

Pros

  • Updates the program to work with Office 365
  • Syncs OneNote and Skydrive
  • Improves on a lot of the minor technical issues

Cons

  • Big file
  • Takes a long time to install
