Anyone see this? According to the article they're only offering it in the United States, France, Canada, Poland and the United Kingdom.

remember when I got my first computer like 15 years back. MS works was part of it. It was so bad. Don't know why they don't just ship a stripped down version of MS word instead of works with computers and giving you the option to upgrade to a more feature rich version .

They do not make money by providing good, free software. They earn money by providing really bad free software that saves in the same format as a product that they charge for.
If Works was actually good enough for most people then nobody would upgrade to the full blown version of Word.
Of course, the system builders could always give Open Office away for free but I doubt that would make them money (they must get a financial reward for including adware).

Then this would seriously hit popularity of their big cash cow - the main reason for Works to be bad is to make Office look good :)

Works is terrible. I got it as part of a package when I bought my first PC. Luckily Word was included too :)

almost every new computer i get with windows has works included. after the first time yearsss ago i checked out works i dont bother anymore, just delete it and install word. no idea if works is any better now.
