“AppleWorks’ last breath was masked by last week’s iMac, iLife and iWork announcements – Apple has discontinued the product,”[…] Thanks to titlesaysitall for providing this nice story on Digg (more than 904Diggs).
What other users say about this:
BrayanTennison: No animal is so inexhaustible as an excited infant.
romeosc: Just because they no longer support it, doesn’t mean it won’t continue performing!
I have MS Office/word /Excel and I still use Appleworks since it works better than iWork!
pantuky: Hip-hip hooray! Now if the MacOS would only follow…
CobaltScribe: I have many fond memories of the Apple II version. This was back when an 80-column display mattered and hard drives were still considered exotic and not essential. I always found humor in the message “Carefully saving file”, as if anything regarding a floppy could be done with care. It’s rather like the passing of the Model T and the typewriter. Now rarely used items, but highly significant in their day.
Solstice: Good. The whole idea of “integrated applications” was great when computers couldn’t multitask and had no UI guidelines. It used to be a total bummer to have to quit your word processor to launch your spreadsheet. However, now that multitasking is ubquitous, a bunch of smaller apps can easily take the place of one giant application.
froggiestone: I LOVE the new imovie editor from apple. really awesome, and im not even a fanboy.
You can see the whole 1 hour keynote (the imac one) on apples HP somewhere.
naio: LOL, Crappleworks.
8bit_Hero: did dvorak predict this?
spiderworm: Nothing is official until Netcraft confirms it.
robwilkens: Anyone taking bets on how many years (or months) till they pronounce iWork to have no more iLife?
dagamer34: iWork still needs some work. No database program or drawing/painting app.
Mattman723: Now I’ll never recover those files from my iMac G3…
Diggernaut: I’m still mourning MacWrite
BLACKEAGLE: isheep freaks
ascotan: Released in 1984?? And its still around??
God it should have died 15 years ago.
