Works is great when you don't have Word, I actually think that Works is moreuser friendly than Word. The one thing that makes Word so good is that if you are going to email an resume to a business then you would have to use Word because not everyone, especially companies, uses Works. I did not know that until recently so that is an FYI for others that are not as computer savy. Although I have both Works and Word on my PC I use Works daily and usually just print out what I need to offer to someone else. If there is something that I need to email to someone else then I usually use Word. But as I stated earlier I feel that Works is user friendlier. I like that way that Woks offers everything that you can do with it on one page in a graph type outline and you just click on what you want to use and follow the template. It can also save you the money of buying Word if you only want to type a few lines and then print it out.
