  1. This is part of the release notes of EVERY Microsoft update….

    “fixes a vulnerability that an attacker can use to overwrite the contents of your computer’s memory with malicious code.”

  2. I’m getting tired of the drivel oozing out of the bowels of “minute-flacid” WHo would want it anyway? Beve and Still perhaps can see the end is near, maybe they should opt for blind folds (is that supposed to hide the smoking barrels?) Well summed up, I wont be putting this on my Mac (Even if I actually had Word)

  3. Yaaaaaaaaaawwwwwwwwwnnnnnnnnnn!

    Big bloody deal.

    Microsoft has patched software that is now 3 years old.

    SO bloody what.

    Just fsck off and die Microsoft – no one wants you or need you.

  4. We can complain as much as we like about Microsoft, but their Mac Business unit does people like me a huge favour in keeping Office for Mac up to date. I’m the sole Mac user in a company of around 400 people, and if it were not for Mac Office and its reasonable interoperability with Office for Windoze, my IT would chop me off at the knees.

    To repeat; all credit to Microsoft’s Mac Business unit. Keep up the good work guys.

    That’s just it though, Office for Mac is one of the worst products ever made. It’s absolutely full of bugs, slow, and extremely poorly designed.

    If the community can just get the ODF standard accepted and MS’s version chucked out, Office for Mac would dissolve like an ice-cream on a hot summer sidewalk. The only thing stopping people from putting out a real alternative is that format issue as it destroys the market for anything non-Microsoft.

    You probably do not use your Mac in business. I do and many files I receive from customers come in MS word or excel formats. I have tried to use NEO and Pages but they do not render the pages properly and thus are useless except for very light work. If either worked for these I would get rid of MS office. I do not see that happening anytime soon.

  7. @ Micro Me: One of the reasons the world is “as it is” is because folks keep accepting — and thus perpetuating — it that way.

    If you want to make the world as it should be, you have to stop accepting it as it is.

  8. As a single hold-out against 400, your comments are hardly applicable in my case, CounterCorp. I have survived numerous corporate attempts to bludgeon me into Windoze use, including locking me out of the email system for two years. My Apple poster still hangs proudly on my office wall, and my Intel iMac is the first thing anybody entering my room sees.

    But it’s best to know what you can change and what you can’t. I can’t change my organisation’s use of Windoze, but I can accommodate it. And the MS Mac business unit is helping me greatly in this regard.

  9. I can’t believe Adobe could write an entirely new Creative Suite from the ground up in Universal Binary in a fraction of the time it’s taking Microsoft to deliver a universal binary of their word processing and spreadsheet apps. Actually, I can believe it. Hopefully the next UB version of Office will be the last one we’ll ever need on a Mac, because it’s clear MS isn’t interested in developing for the platform anymore.
