Microsoft Does Something Right?!?!

You know how when you install software, usually there’s a lengthy license that nobody ever reads?  Don’t lie- you don’t read it either. Apple and iPhones are the worst, where they suggest that you read something like 56 pages of license on your iPhone.  YEAH RIGHT.

Well, I just installed an update for Mac Office 2011 and here is the entire license:

PLEASE NOTE: Microsoft Corporation (or based on where you live, one of its affiliates) licenses this supplement to you. You may use it with each validly licensed copy of Microsoft Office for Mac 2011 software (for which this supplement is applicable) (the “software”). You may not use the supplement if you do not have a license for the software. The license terms for the software apply to your use of this supplement. Microsoft provides support services for the supplement as described at

That’s it.  And it’s simple to read, and its meaning is clear.  Nice, eh?  Of course I’m sure the main agreement is still very long (I don’t know– I didn’t have to agree to that since this is a corporate copy, lawyers probably did).
