This is a reasonable 'office' productivity package for home users. It has a full copy of Word 2002 (not the Office 2003 version though) that's far more functional than the standard Works 8 word processor. Word is by far the most used office package so this MS Suite really scores over the basic MS Works 8 bundled in with PCs. In addition the suite has MS Works, and that provides a very simple Excel type spreadsheet and an equally simple non-relational database that's fine for things like your CD and DVD collection. There's no Powerpoint style slide presenter though. MS works isn't anything like as powerful as MS Office 2003 Pro (or anything like as expensive or as complicated to get to grips with). This Works Suite scores though in also providing some extra software packages: MS Money 2006 (home finance) and Encarta Standard 2006 (a pretty good encyclopedia) and AutoRoute Streets and Trips Essentials that covers all of Europe. There is also a good simple photo editing and archiving software package as well, but this isn't anything like as sophisticated as Photoshop Elements that is often bundled with cameras and scanners. So Works Suite 2006 is a worthwhile upgrade on the standard bundled PC office software on a new PC - far better than just MS Works. Plus, unlike MS Office 2003, this Works Suite 2006 will run on older versions of Windows (98SE, ME, 2000 and XP) - except Encarta which is 2000/XP only.

However for basic home-office, if you have simple needs (or far more complex), try out OpenOffice.org [v2.0]. It's a free download, has basic compatibility with MS Office (it includes Writer, Calc, & DataBase, plus a PowerPoint style presenter and a full drawing package) and has all the main functionality of MS Office. You can buy OpenOffice as Star Office for manuals, better support etc.

The SERVICE from Amazon as usual has to be spelt in capitol letters as I am well into my 70's and have never had such, easy ordering, quick delivery, exceptional prices, helpful returns and all in all sell quality products.
