    In my opinion: NO great advantages whatsoever because office remains office. The great step so far was from 2003 to 2007 but the last two 2010 and 2013 seem very much alike (not considering the small differences and UI) and added just a few extras on top of 2007, from a user point of view.

    just ran windows update, seems they fixed the glitch that wasn't seeing those office security updates, it must be more on their server end and not the actual update file.

    Now just that one W8 optional update is still failing to install.

    All the updates, including office 2010 all installed fine and dandy for me, no double-ups or anything, sorry for the people who are having trouble.

    You can change the theme to "Office Dark Grey" and it tones down the brightness quite a bit.

    Thanks very much Mystere for the heads up. Have done and it has made it quite acceptable.

    Microsoft fixes bad patch detection

    One of the many problems Microsoft has had lately with their software updates is that several of the updates in the last group, released on Tuesday September 10, had a detection error: For many users, even after apparently accepting and installing the update, several would keep offering for install in Windows Update, Windows Server Update Services (WSUS) or System Center Configuration Manager (SCCM).

    No more auto bricking for this user will wait at least one week for updates.
