Microsoft Are you familiar with Microsoft Works? It's sort of a My First Office Suite kind of thing which includes support for Microsoft Word and Excel documents. It is usually not sold separately, but instead comes pre-installed on new OEM machines. Well, Microsoft has announced today that it will kill Microsoft Works, and replace it with Microsoft Office 2010 Starter - an ad-supported version of Office 2010.

I like Works 9. I thought they got it right (finally) for the role that it was intended for. I use it daily and I find myself productive in it.

When I need a more complicated document done, I fire Framemaker.
