    Simple question.

    I know it was available as separate download, but is it now mandatory part of SP2 or not?

    So installing it won't trigger OGA checks.
    Right?

    Just to be 100% sure.

    If you mean "so installing office 2007 won't trigger OGA checks. Right?" then answer is 'yes'.
    The OGA addon is not a required download, nor is it 'selected' ( i.e. the tick box is not ticked by default - it must be manually ticked).

    If it appears as an available update, hide it and forget about it...

    Other than a being able to download a few obscure addons OGA will not prevent you for doing anything and it will not nag you once hidden.

    Obviously once OGA is installed then its a question of removal or circumvention.

    Almost. I meant will installing SP2 update for Office 2007 trigger OGA checks (since I assume SP2 was released after OGA update, so I was worried if SP2 was bundled with it). I currently have installed Office 2007 and its SP1 update and all works fine, but would avoid SP2 if it includes OGA checks (if not, I'll install it :D).
