Still holding onto Office 2010? Microsoft would be tickled pink if you'd make the plunge to its subscription-based Office 365 suite, but that doesn't mean the Redmond software giant has forgotten about its customers rocking an older version of its productivity software. Just the opposite, Microsoft this week released Service Pack 2 (SP2) for the Office 2010 and SharePoint 2010 set of products.

"SP2 provides key updates and fixes across our servers, services and applications including security, stability, and performance enhancements and provides better compatibility with Windows 8, Internet Explorer 10, Office 2013, and SharePoint 2013," Microsoft stated in a blog post.

Office 2010

The beta version of SP2 for Office 2010 and SharePoint 2010 was released back in April, so it's taken Microsoft a few months to clean up the code and get it ready for prime time. It's the first major update to the suite in about two years and perhaps the last. Going forward, Microsoft is pushing its Office 365 platform pretty hard. The advantage of a cloud-based subscription service is that you're always running the latest version with all pertinent updates.

Good to know they will keep updating 2010. I have no plans to upgrade to a newer version till 2010 basically becomes obsolete like 2007 did.

Cheapest is still like $85 bucks for the home version if you buy it brand new or if you know someone that knows someone that knows someone like I did and got it free since they had a couple extra licenses.

I know that at thepiratebay, everything is free, so, technically, you can get it for free.
