Do you think that Microsoft will ever update Microsoft Office for Mac 2011 to include full screen support, resume, and versions? I hope so, because I find MS Office much more usable than iWork right now, but since iWork got these updates, I'm on the fence on which suite to use.

There is another thread around here saying MS posted a blog indicating they will, but it will take a couple of months

MS has already released one office update... Seems like they will stay actively on it. Good news eh?

Hi,

Just a warning; if you have upgraded to 10.7.2, then the Office 13.1.2 update will fail. It didn't work on my MP, but was fine on my MBP, which is still only on 10.7.

Thanks for the info - I wonder if .1 will break it. I've noticed the Excel Solver doesn't even load on my MBP. It crashes every time I start it.
