Mac Office 2004 v11.3.2 officially released

Mac Office 11.3.2 update

Microsoft's Mac Business Unit (MacBU) today released the Mac Office 2004 v11.3.2 update that it referenced in its latest Mac Mojo blog post after accidentally releasing several binaries which were not ready for release. "The new download is for both Office X and 2004 and contains all of the stability improvements that were ready to go live, and removes the not-yet-ready-for-prime-time code that was accidentally released last week," said the MacBU. The company instructed users to uninstall the patch after the updates were accidentally made live, but gave no clear indication on how to uninstall the questionable updates.

    or any other...

    ....of the glaring issues with Exchange connectivity (delegates, calendar synching, loss of schedule items, etc) - which Microsoft now claims will never get fixed in the current versions of Entourage/Office (instead deferring to Office 2007, which we all know won't have those fixes either).

    The MacBu...

    *used* to be good programmers, individually -- then they got hired by Microsoft. That corporate culture, plus being regularly assigned incompetent program managers has resulted in the mess Office is in now.

    MSBU

    The business unit has always been pretty good considering they are constantly crippled by their administrators.

    They just can't let Mac Office get too good. They need to keep these problems in place so people on the fence stay on the fence.

    The MBU work with their legs hobbled and arms tied.

    If MS had been broken into separate companies as was their original anti-comp punishment, Office would be a better application on all fronts and would probably have a linux version too. MS would actually be a better company putting out a better product.

    I don't expect Entourage to get any better. Whatever we get in Office 2008 will be all we're going to get. I don't expect much there either.

    If you want a good cross platform suite, switch to something else, maybe Lotus smart suite (?)
