This review does not compare different works programs, but it will give you a good understanding of how ClarisWorks integrates different types of software into one functional package. In my opinion, ClarisWorks is the best overall of the three new works programs (BeagleWorks and GreatWorks being the others). Whether ClarisWorks is right for you depends on three factors:
The importance of easy integration and consistency of interface between different modules/applications.
The relative need for certain features in each module.
The cost and efficacy of ClarisWorks compared to shareware and commercial alternatives.
