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...
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
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 ...
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.
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'.
