1.0 out of 5 stars Very Disappointing 23 Aug 2006
I agree fully with the previous reviewer. The quality of the CD/DVD presentation is extremely poor, making articles difficult to read, and the coverage is short and superficial. Check out Encarta as a much better alternative.

5.0 out of 5 stars They have done it again 16 Sep 2005
I have just had a look at my new copy of the Britannica 2006 DVD and am extremely impressed. It has been completely revamped compared to the older versions I have and the interface is now intuitive and uncluttered. It is also more fun to use for example there is a new 'this day in history tool' which offers a date based daily selection of relevant articles. It still has more content than any other Encyclopedia - the DVD version having more than even the famous Britannica Print set - and fully supports serious research It is thorough, well researched, comprehensive and trustworthy. Not only are there onver 100,000 articles but links to over 165,00 websites recommended by Britannica Editors for further reading - you will no longer need to spend hours on search engines like Google! There are also databases for younger members of the family, one aimed at senior school level the other primary school, and lots of multimedia - vidoes, interactive atlas and timeline, research organiser, the list seems almost endless. Definately fantastic value for money especially when you consider that the books are nearly 1,000!

1.0 out of 5 stars EB software does not work with Windows Vista 3 Mar 2007
EB own words: "Unfortunately, at this time the Britannica software is not compatible with Windows Vista. We are working on developing another version of the 2007 software that will work on Windows Vista and we are planning to release this version in the upcoming months. Please check back with us in another month or so and we should have some more information about the Vista-compatible software. But, it is entirely possible that we will not have Windows Vista compatible version of the 2007 product available and that we will wait until the development of the 2008 software." They do NOT offer a reasonable on-line subscription.

1.0 out of 5 stars NOT INTEL MAC COMPATIBLE 31 May 2006
When it says Mac compatible it means NOT INTEL Mac compatible! What's worse the support site says that they won't be fixing it.

If you have an Intel Mac - steer clear.
