    I use appleworks on the macs at college for most of the college computer work (its a design college).

    But i like PC's more which is why have only PC's at home.

    Anyone have appleworks for windows? i'll pay for a copy.

    If not, anyone know an e-seller where i can get it from.

    Or even better, where i can download it from.

    thanks.

    According to apple.com, AppleWorks is only available for Mac. However, you can convert to MS Office format for use at home using MacLink (or perhaps AppleWorks has it integrated?) and then back to AppleWorks by the same method.

    Apple Works 5.0 works on both mac and Windows. You can only see the corresponding file in the correct OS

    Save the file as a Rich Text File and both mac and pc can always read and write it.

    I dont want to do just word processing, i need to do drawing/presentation sheets etc, most of my work is in the drawing software of appleworks.

    As I said before, I believe AppleWorks can convert to and from MS format (ppt, word, etc...). If not, MacLink certainly can.

    Well, its a design college, and considering its england they expect the students to be new to computing and all that stuff. Im easily the most computer-literate person in my class thats why im looking to do extra work at home so i dont have to do it there.

    Also, the college is pretty much anti-PC, they are always kissing Apple's ass, i bet they really expect me to buy a mac :mad:

    When i go back after the break i'll ask the technician guy, he should have a solution.
