Hi

I have a PowerPC iMac and my friend has just got a new intel mac and I was going to put AppleWorks that came on my mac onto theirs via my USB memory stick. Is it safe to do this or is AppleWorks that comes on a PowerPC not compatible with intel?
I was going to put Office on for them but I have used up all my 3 installs.

Thanks
Amy

I don't recall getting Apple Works with my iMac. You get a demo of iWork, but no Apple Works. It's probably a good thing, Apple Works is a pretty poor app. I bought it when I got my 1GHz PB, and it seemed outdated even then.

True yet its still better then nothing. I also have a few things I would like to bring over from PPC and Appleworks is one of those things. Apple should have updated it in my view. I guess Apple decided not to replace it or update it?

Try NeoOffice, similar to Microsoft Office, only free. Much better than Apple Works.

Thank you. It will proberbly be on the bundled software cd that came with their mac i think.

Thanks
Not with the Intel Macs. Only TextEdit, Office for Mac Test Drive and iWork 30 day trial.

I installed an older, (or should I say current), version of Appleworks on my MBP and it works fine, but merely takes up disk space as I never use it.

Still not tried Appleworks as a drag and drop transfer though.
