  • Summary: Better than Windows 8, but this is nothing to be excited about. Installation is quite easy, and switching around major components won't always require a reinstall which is nice. Hopefully Windows 9 will be better...
  • Pros: Boot to Desktop, Fake Start Menu Button
  • Cons: It's still Windows 8, Metro UI

  • Summary: Overall, I find coming from Windows 7, this is a bad OS. I tried using this for a while when building a computer for someone, and although I am sure that with a bunch of hours to learn it, it'd be fine, but in my experience, I found it less intuitive than Windows 7.
  • Pros: - SUPER quick, - Latest and Greatest, - Easy Install
  • Cons: - Very annoying coming from Windows 7, - Certain features are missing, unless you google how to optimize it

  • Summary: hard to get used to when you 1st get on win8.1, but after some looking, reading a few articles its quite easy now...even though it seems like sometimes few to many steps to do certain things. biggest concern however is the fact that you can only activate it on one computer...
  • Pros: so far no bugs/crashes or system issue of any kind
  • Cons: takes some getting used to new layout, seems like alot of unesccesary steps to get things done

MS 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.

  • Summary: 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.
  • 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 ...

Item is NOT as pictured!

Debra E., Newegg

  • Pros: The product itself is what it is, a good deal for reseller to provide a common "office" package with a new system.
  • Cons: Resellers should know that the item pictured is NOT what is delivered. It comes in a plain white CD envelope w/license sticker, which looks very different to the end-user when one is selling a system; there is no orange folder etc.

  • Pros: This is comparable to Works v6 that I have on another system. It will handle the general needs you would have for letter writing, database, etc.
  • Cons: I find the GUI to be a touch overpowering. I prefer to choose my tasks from the menu as per previous versions. Still a good program.

  • Summary: Of Course this product doesn't have powerpoint, that is found in an Office package. You can actually get a free powerpoint viewer from several sites on the web. Works is needed for documents already created in and saved as Works docs. the tell tale sign would be if your doc ends in a '.wks'.

  • Summary: This is a basic program. It has numerous templates for almost any occasion. I was dissapointed that is only had a powerpoint viewer, but no powerpoint creator. For the price it is good.
