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!
