3 out of 5 eggsMS Works

Pros: I bought this product in an attempt to recover old documents created on a now extinct version of works. I was able to read several of my old Works spreadsheets which worked out well.

Cons: This version is not fully compatible with older forms of Works, I was unable to access older works word processing documents.

4 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Cheap, relatively easy to work with. A good all-in-one office product for low- to mid-end users on an internal usage.

Cons: Incompatible with MS Office, both ways.

Other Thoughts: Bought this for my Grandparent's new PC as their old machine had Works 4.0 and all their documents were in .wps format. Nice and cheap and reads all their old files happily.

These days, however, you're better off just learning to use OpenOffice.

4 out of 5 eggsA Good Stepping Stone

Pros: Works 8.5 qualifies as a product that can be upgraded with Office Standard 2007 Upgrade.

Cons: None. I didn't actually install Works; I just showed Office 2007's installer the CD.

Other Thoughts: I used Works 8.5 along with the upgrade version of Office Standard 2007 Upgrade in putting together a new build for a customer interested in having Office on their new machine.

5 out of 5 eggsWorks 8.5 is great

Pros: I have been usingg using Works at home for at least 10 years even though I have access to the full Office Suites at work. Works is 99% as functional as they are. Works 8.5 looks and runs smooth and slick, although I haven't had the 8.5 long. The OEM version installs and runs just like the retail version, but is ridiculously cheap !!!!!!

Cons: No documentation. But there is online help if you need it. Works is so simple and intuitive that I have never needed any.

3 out of 5 eggsPrevious Works User

Pros: Price. For a general-use office suite, how can you beat the price? Offers all the basics -- Word Processor, Spreadsheet, Database (non-relational), Calendar and many templates.

Cons: The only thing improved on this version is the calendar. This version removed the ability to open .dbf files from the database. It removed the WordArt and Draw functions. It removed the ability to customize the icon bar. In the database, it removed the ability to default the printing to the last record, so often times the entire database prints out when you only want the last form (record).

Other Thoughts: Again, the calendar works better in this version. You can merge four calendars into one view and see how four family members' schedules align. It also has reminders that pop up upon starting Windows without having the program loaded. Other than that, stick with an older version of Works. This one is a step backwards (perhaps to avoid giving the full priced Office less competition).

5 out of 5 eggsWorked as advertised.

Pros: Got it for mom so she could view the word docs and powerpoint files she gets in email from friends at church. It does that and she can edit word based docs also. For ten bucks, that makes it a steal.

Cons: None.

Other Thoughts: Great deal for anybody who doesn't want Micr$oft Orifice installed on their machine or doesn't want to spend that kind of money on WP software.
