Arghhh Microsoft

Can someone please explain to me how Microsoft can release a new "service pack" to address issue in MS Office 2008 for the Mac and NOT realize that installing it will make it impossible for you to open documents created using the earlier revision of MS Office 2008, leaving you no choice but to trash the applications and reload from the original CD and update right up to but not including the latest update?

Of course, this is an improvement. The last time they issued a service pack for MS Office 2008 for Mac it merely killed your ability to open any PowerPoint files that were created by Office 2004 so at least the Microsoft bugs are getting with the times and affecting more current files.

Needless to say, I was not pleased to spend that extra time tonight at work trying to MS Office running properly.
