A word of warning...

Microsoft Office for Mac updater 11.3.6 completely corrupted my Office installation. Nothing works, and I have to reinstall everything. Once I find the CDs, that is. So you might want to be careful about upgrading.

Oh well, time to update ~NeoOffice and ~OpenOffice... Shame, Office for Mac is actually a decent piece of software. It's just that the guys who wrote the updater should be taken into the woods and shot for being incompetent. After the updater "updated" things, even downloading the direct update installer from Microsoft refuses to run.


The new NeoOffice (based on OpenOffice.org 2.0) is a welcome upgrade, but seems very, very slow on my G4 PowerBook. Shame. I was finally able to find X11, so I could try OpenOffice, but I don't think it'll be much faster...

There's also a native Aqua-based ~OpenOffice, but that's still an early alpha.
