AppleWorks 6.x

AppleWorks for the Apple Macintosh and Windows is an all-in-one Word Processor, Spreadsheet, Database, Graphics Editor, and Presentations tool forked from ClarisWorks in 1998 by Apple. At the time, Apple was under a lot of pressure to have a direct alternative to Microsoft Office. There were serious concerns that Microsoft might pull Microsoft Office for the Macintosh from development.

Mac/Win AppleWorks is completely unrelated to the 1980's Apple II AppleWorks. They simply re-used the name to gain brand recognition.

In 2007, Apple discontinued AppleWorks in favor of the iWork productivity suite. AppleWorks for Macintosh was never ported to the Intel CPUs. The last version was 6.x.
