"The text talks about Works 8 NOT Works 9.0"

September 25, 2009  |  By TheMilkybarKid

 |  Version: Microsoft Works 9.0

Pros

I'm not sure what to say because in the 'About' for my Works it says that it is version 9.7.613 and that to me means it is more up-to-date than Works 9.0

Cons

I've got version 9.7.613 so why would I want version 9.0 that is referred to in the text of this review as version 8

Summary

CNET needs to clarify what is being reviewed and update Techtracker to recognise that according to this so far my version is newer

"Is this being downloaded"

May 14, 2012  |  By AndoDoug

 |  Version: Microsoft Works 9.0

Pros

Is this product being downloaded to my computer by our friends at Microsoft Windows?

Cons

I haven't opened it yet - what am I getting myself into.

Summary

Anything on my hard drive is subject to the same scrutiny, so it should be me who decides to download it. Annoying, and as far as I know, terrible, because it is being pushed on me. I think.

"Too much underpowered"

October 01, 2010  |  By eli.64000

 |  Version: Microsoft Works 9.0

Pros

None I can think of: ever most basic free software alternatives does better what Works does. Ok, it is quite simple to use.

Cons

Why pay for something so sub-par? It would have hard times to get accepted by users even if it was free.

Summary

Seriously MS, you won the Office battle so badly that you killed even your non-Office productivity suite, so why do you continue to waste your resources there?
They would be far better spent joining the open source community and help improving Open Office.
You would have an huge return in terms of image, and you could even roll out (with a smaller effort) a MS Open Office to be preinstalled on low cost computers instead of Works, with better compatibility with Office's formats and look and feel, keeping for MS Office the key features that gives its huge advantage.

July 08, 2010  |  By robertgoe

Well, it does write letters.

About all it will do is write letters.
My old one will split pages.

"This software is garbage."

December 10, 2009  |  By JaneDoeYoVilleCrew

 |  Version: Microsoft Works 9.0

Pros

I like nothing about this product. The best part of this product would be a refund.

Cons

I don't like anything about this product. The software has "broken" files, it will not repair when prompted. The software needs to be reinstalled, this has been done several times without success. NOT WORTH IT-DO NOT PURCHASE.

Summary

The only reason this product rates with one star is because less stars was not an option. This product is terribe, not abe to write a simple paper due to broken files. Too much time spent "fixing" software and very little time usinghte software. Repair ilnks not available online. DO NOT PURCHASE THIS SOFTWARE-GARBAGE

"TechTracker update report"

October 25, 2009  |  By navyrick

 |  Version: Microsoft Works 9.0

Pros

I have Microsoft Works 8.0 installed and it has been updated to v8.5 - program works as advertised.

Cons

I have Works 8.0 that has been updated top v8.5 -- WHY should I spend MORE $$$$ on 9.0?

Summary

Why is TechTracker not realizing that I only have Works 8.0 installed and it has been updated?
