Update MS Office X

I guess there is no such thing as a combined update for Microsoft Office X For Mac OS X. The current version is 10.1.5. I install Office 10.0.0 (from CD) and go to VersionTracker to download the latest version, 10.1.5. Well I cannot install 10.1.5, see the dialog box at left. I ended up having to install 10.1.2, 10.1.3, and 10.1.4 before the 10.1.5 update. I thought everyone made combo updates these days. It is just annoying. If you are going to make an update to a piece of software, for crying out loud make it easy for users to upgrade. It is a good thing I had a broadband connection available to download all these incremental updates.

Office Patches, even for the PC, have been (for the most part) entirely incremental. Usually in Office systems on the PC, for SP2 to install properly, SP1 has to be installed (for example).

It's annoying, and Microsoft is working on it, from what I've read, but they primarily do it that way to make it so you don't have to download one huge file -- just a bunch of smaller ones (despite the download time being more).
