  1. “fixes vulnerabilities in Microsoft Office 2004 for Mac that an attacker can use to overwrite the contents of your computer’s memory with malicious code”

    That’s what they said for the last 2 updates this year.


    Apple hurry up with Numbers/Charts/iWork ’07 so I can secure my Mac by dropping al MS products.


  2. Why is it that EVERY Microsoft update only offers to “fix vulnerabilities” in whatever program is being updated.

    Whatever happened to actually adding a new feature more often than once every 2 or 3 years! Geez…

  3. Office is a bloated fat ugly uncontrollable chair-throwing piece of software that has no place on my computer. But of course it is their and I am now just down to Excel when needed…

    I will cheer the day I no longer have it on my computer. The world of Apple Mac has moved on. Unlike MS & Office.

  4. Come on people, be reasonable: When Apple releases an update that fixes vulnerabilities (like they do in almost all of them) its great, but when Microsoft does it means their product stinks… a double standard methinks. I use Microsoft Office for the Mac and think its a great product. I use the PC version at work, and the Mac version I think is better (much more stable). Anyway, although I HATE Microsoft’s Windows products (they do stink), some of their products are good: like Office and the Xbox.

    BTW I updated two computers with the update and have not had any problems.

    Fair is fair, not everything Microsoft does is evil, not all of their products stink, and Bill Gates is not the Devil (though I am not so sure about Steve Ballmer).

  5. OpJ –

    As a former Word 5.1 user who reluctantly switched to Office 2004 when I upgraded to OS X 10.4, I have to admit there ARE a few features that 5.1 doesn’t have that I actually use: the ability to kern type, to change leading in finer than full-point increments, to have letterhead images behind the typing surface.

    That said, I miss 5.1 for its ability to stay out of my way. I tried working with columns in Word 2004, and the damn thing kept changing section breaks on me again and again (from page break to continuous) for no reason I can understand.

    I also hate the “nanny features” built into the new version of Entourage, especially its refusal to automatically download the graphics in HTML e-mail. It infuriates me that this is a “privacy” feature that can’t be turned off.
