    Yet another security update for Office. It would be nice if their engineers could spend as much time writing bug fixes as plugging security holes. Two years later, not a day goes by that I don’t regret “upgrading” to Office 2011… at least the issues in Office 2004 were fairly easy to circumvent. 2011 just…sucks. Hoping Apple’s update of iWork this Fall finally allows me to leave Office behind forever….

      They do include non-security fixes in these updates. See the KB article associated with them.
