It's a cumulative update, including all of 14.2.4 through 14.3.

Why does every story about Microsoft bring out the hateboys who don't even use Microsoft products? If you're happy with home-handyman-level, easy to use iWorks then just use it and shut up.

If a user needs real spreadsheet and word processor power then MS Office is the way to go. Office 2011 is so much better than iWorks. I've got both on my Macs.

I'm not arguing with the features disparity; MS Office takes the cake there. I am just tired of frustration.

Has anyone ever taken notes with Word 2011 on a Mac in Notebook layout then increased the magnification at the top only to see strange wordart formatting pop up anywhere? It's a glitch and a very annoying one at that.

People do just fine in the Real World using Pages (formerly AppleWorks) for years. It's true, that Pages and Numbers might not be the gold standard in the corporate world, but they do just fine for small businesses, students, educators, and home users in the Real World.

I guess you do more of your work alone? Doesn't quite work this way in the corporate world (or even university/college).

No not really... resumes are nothing; you can even whip one up with TextEdit if necessary!

Well, the fact you are writing resumes tells me you're unemployed and not part of the REAL WORLD which collaborates using MS Office.

Seriously people... another argument comparing MS Office apps to Apple's crap? Really?

I'm still running Mac Office 2011 version 14.0.0 for this very reason.

No MS update is a good MS update.

I don't have to use an office suite all that often, fortunately; but, when I do, I generally am working collaboratively with someone else. That's much easier to do using MS Office than it is with iWork.

No MS update in your case is a product that's highly flawed and very highly unpatched & vulnerable. I presume you are joking, no one can be that much of a moron, right?

What the heck. I downloaded 14.3.1 but it wouldn't let me update. 14.3 wouldn't let me update either so I had to grab 14.2.3 updater first and then do them in order.

Mine is 14.2.5. Think I will jsut skip the 14.3.1 update till later. Glad I did not update to 14.3.0. In fact, somehow, I did not get notified by MS Office at all. What gives Microsoft?
