    Safe to install Office 2008?
    I heard earlier there are some concerns with installing Office 2008 for Mac. It seems it was something about the installer opening up a security hole. I purchased Office 2008 on release date but never installed it since I'm waiting to install it on a new MBP I'm purchasing this weekend. Is it safe to install it or some type of fix for it once installed? Are there certain procedures I should follow when installing?

    I haven't heard of any security issues when installing Office 2008. I've been running it since day one and things have been great. I believe a small update came out a few days ago, so that might alleviate any concerns you might have.

    Install it no worries, however make sure you uninstall the trial edition which will be included with your new Macbook first. Then update.
