Deploying Sharepoint Services with only Office XP

  Asked By: Grayson    Date: Oct 29    Category: Sharepoint    Views: 1223

My boss wants to deploy SharePoint Services to a group a small division within our organization. However, our current MS Office Suite is XP. I was wondering if there are any pros and cons with running SharePoint Services with MS Office XP as opposed to MS Office 2003.

I wouldn’t say there are cons  to running  XP instead of 2003, more than there are pros  to running 2003. Office 2003 includes a bunch of hooks into SharePoint things like check in/check out within the clients (Word/Excel), and multiple document uploading into document libraries. So no, there’s no negative aspect to running Office XP, just missing out on some enhancements 2003 brings to the table.
