AppleWorks 6 Presents, Too!

AppleWorks 6 Presents, Too! Oops. AppleWorks 6 does indeed have a presentation module, so my offhand comment to the contrary last week in "Apple Reduces Its Microsoft Dependency" was just plain wrong. My only defense is that I've never seen AppleWorks 6, since Apple doesn't generally send us review copies. AppleWorks 6 replaced the communication module in AppleWorks 5 about two years ago, and although I can't comment on how good AppleWorks 6's presentation module is, it's interesting to see how Apple redirected efforts from the AppleWorks presentation module into the full-featured Keynote. Perhaps the same thing is happening with other chunks of AppleWorks. As an aside, if you're interested in the history of integrated software, check out the final link below for the tale of how ClarisWorks came to be, written by one of the program's creators. [ACE]
