Cool i am glad to see them still updating office 2004 but this also scares the heck out of me that a security flaw is still there in both 2008 and 2004 and they have to release a update.

Word and Excel 2008 actually appear to be faster after this one.

Yup, opens considerably faster with the update (at least on my mini anyway).

Thanks all!

Ditto. This is the first update that did anything for me. Now Word opens about as fast as the 2004 version running in Rosetta. Ironic since I bought 2008 in the first place to get faster app startup, which you would expect going from Rosetta to Universal, right? Evil or Very Mad

I'd really like it if they gave us at least the most important Excel plug-ins, like megastat for example. ...that way I don't have to virtualize.
