Office 2010 First Thoughts….

I like it.

 

A lot.

 

Aside from;

Pointing the new “Social” side of Outlook 2010 at SharePoint 2007 SP2 tells me that “The server version is not supported”.

 

Why not Microsoft?

 

I would presume that either;

a) there will be a post-Office 2010 patch for SharePoint 2k7 to make it “supported”

b) Office 2010 users will have to use SharePoint 2010 to integrate into Outlook. Which is a real shame.

 

Aside from that, thumbs up from me to Microsoft. Only on Beta2 but I like it and cannot wait for RTM (whenever that is!)

UPDATE:

Still doesn’t work with our SharePoint 2007 farm in the Public Beta, however the SharePoint Workspace application (which is new) points that it is only supported in SharePoint 2010 – which now has a public beta.

Still a shame, I wanted to test both features but don’t have an SharePoint 2010 server to point at… Yet.
