Send Article to a Friend

Refusing to leave those who haven’t upgraded behind, Microsoft has released a couple of updates for older versions of the Office suite — the 2008 edition has been bumped to version 12.2.9, while its 2004 counterpart is now at version 11.6.3. The Office 2008 update requires Mac OS X 10.4.9 Tiger or later and includes a number of security, stability, and performance improvements, additional support for Microsoft’s SkyDrive cloud-based file sharing system, improved compatibility with the SharePoint enterprise collaboration system, and individual fixes for both Entourage and PowerPoint. The Office 2004 update, which needs 10.2.8 Jaguar or later, contains only unspecified security fixes. (Free updates; 333.1 MB for 2008, 23.4 MB for 2004)

Comments about Microsoft Office 2008 12.2.9 / 2004 11.6.3

I didn't realize I was three upgrades behind. To upgrade to the latest I had to upgrade the other two first. My suggestion is to mention that in your article. Thanks.
