Microsoft Works Comments

He he he. No one like Works.

about Microsoft Works and Apache OpenOffice Jun 2011

He he he. No one like Works, I used to use it back in primary school (the late 90's), but it is now surpassed by even low-grade free software, because its when practically unchanged since then. Not to mention the availability of OpenOffice.org which is an excellent suite.

Works... works.

Comment by OmgItsTheSmartGuy
about Microsoft Works and Microsoft Office Suite Jun 2011

Works... works. It's not a particularly good office suite, but it's pretty much free, despite its "commercial" label. Almost every computer comes bundled with it, so it's like a free (crappy) version of Microsoft Office.
