In December, when Microsoft rolled out Service Pack (SP) 1 for the 2007 Office System, company officials said they’d give customers a minimum 30-day advance notice before pushing out the service pack via its Microsoft Update (MU) auto-distribution mechanism.
On May 8, Microsoft gave users that promised heads-up. From a Microsoft spokeswoman:
“Today we are providing our customers more than 30 days advance notice that SP1 for the 2007 Microsoft Office system, which was made available to the public on December 11, 2007, will be released via MU automatic distribution beginning June 16, 2008. This means that those customers who have not already installed SP1 and that have chosen to receive updates automatically will start to receive the service pack as early as June 16th. The distribution through MU is a gradual process and so not every customer will see the service pack on June 16th.”
