    1. Actually, if Microsoft is fixing security holes on old software, then I have to give them some credit. Contrast that approach with Google, who cannot be bothered with patching software that is currently in use in tens of millions of Android phones.

      Given the choice, I will take Microsoft, and that is saying something coming from a die-hard Apple fan from the late 1970s who suffered through the late 1980s and 1990s.

    2. it makes sense for them to update 5 year old software. Do you want to spend $140 on something every year when the old version will work perfectly and the new one might only be marginally better?

  1. How can you release an update that prevents the main Outlook window from opening and not notice? Bizarre! Thank god for Time Machine which quickly undid that nightmare for my customers who suffered as a result. Question is does 14.5.1 break anything else? I think 14.4.9 will do for now…
