My computer has Microsoft Works but my friends have Microsoft Office including Outlook, Excel, Access etc. What is better? What do you have?

    hmm works is the one thats bundled with package computers, hmm office itself costs more(not if its *cough cough* free)

    most important point is to try either out and see what best suits your taste

    hmm whats the linux programs that opens up word documents etc
    is it called ability office?

    Office is generally better as each program in the package is dedicated for doing its specified job whereas works basically contains small snippets from each of the office programs combined into one program.

    Well I prefer Office (Access, Ecxel etc) as I am at school and I use them alot. I only use my home computer for the Internet really.

    Works is just too complicated.
