Remember that the iBook is not designed for professional use, and as much as a typical TidBITS reader might want additional features and capabilities, many of us aren't the target audience. Apple is targeting the consumer market with the iBook, and the designers obviously thought long and hard about which features could be cut to save money while at the same time differentiating the iBook from the PowerBook G3.

OS9 treasures: Appleworks 6

On the original iBook OS9 installation CD you will find in addition to the operating system some bonus programs that are easily overlooked. The first iBooks which came with Mac OS8.6 were bundled with AppleWorks 5, newer iBooks with Version 6.



AppleWorks, the forerunner of iWork, offers a set of functions. Word processing, page layout, painting, spreadsheet calculation, database and pesentation module. The Appleworks version 6 comes with a converter for older MS Office formats. Apple Works 6 has a good performance on low equipped Clamshell and works sufficiently for for private use. With the last available patch you can run it under OSX. Apple also offers PDF manuals for download.
