Microsoft Works 2.x (Win)

Microsoft Works was a scaled-down Word Processor, Spreadsheet, and Database bundle geared towards the home user. It was released in variants for early DOS, Windows, and Macintosh. Microsoft Works competed against FrameWork, AlphaWorks/LotusWorks, PFS First Choice, and many others. Works was a completely different product from, and even competed against Microsoft Office. Occasionally, Works was bundled with a version of Word, to cover for weaknesses and lack of popularity of the native word processor in the package. Microsoft Works was discontinued in 2007, with the final version being 9.0.
