Well, I'm downloading it right now. 57.3 MB.

Doesn't say anything in the updater about specs.

Wow, anything interesting? They've really been updating Office constantly this year....
Maybe, it's a peace offering considering that they just announced that Office 2007 for Mac will lag about 6 months after the Windows version.

Which still puts it about six months ahead of a version of MSN Messenger that does video conferencing? :eek: :(

Hmm, can't really feel a difference.

It said in the installer about some dictionary files for German, Swedish and English. I didn't manage to read more. It took like 14 seconds to install.;)

I don't think it does anything much featurewise.

My girlfriend has been saying how slow MS office runs on her intel iMac.

Think this update would speed anything up for her?
Doubt it, considering Office:mac isn't Universal yet.

It's not running faster at all. This was merely a security update.:p

The only thing that makes me feel secure about it is that I don't use it. :D

Messenger was also updated and seems about the same. Of course, I wasn't noticing any issue since I normally run Mercury messenger instead.
