Microsoft Office v. X for Mac 2006 Update Details

While Office 2004 often uses version numbers for its updates, Office v.X typically opts for date-based naming conventions. It’s a matter of preference, though a little consistency would be nice. The latest release is officially termed the Microsoft Office v. X for Mac Update (2006-12-19), now available for users. This update primarily addresses a critical bug in PowerPoint where the application would crash upon opening a presentation.

Luckily, my profession doesn’t require the use of PowerPoint, and for that, I am grateful every day.

My sympathies to those who rely on it.

Before applying this update, ensure that your system already has the Microsoft Office v. X for Mac 10.1.8 Update installed.
