I spoke too soon. Although Money seems to be running perfectly well on my computer using the Windows 8 system, other programmes that I thought were running are not. WordPerfect, for instance, is less than perfect. So much less, that I have uninstalled it. This has been my word processing package of choice since before any computers came with Word pre-installed. I did look to see if there is an updated version that will run on W8 - but not at that price, thank you very much! I'll get to grips with Word. Who says you can't teach an old dog new tricks? I always swore that WordPerfect was the best for producing the monthly newsletter for the Lions Club but I've made a good start on the January issue using Word.
For spreadsheets, my original choice was Lotus 123. And even when I started using Excel, I still found that Lotus was produced charts that were more to my satisfaction. However, I have just tried out the version of Excel that I bought with the computer, and guess what? It's as good as, or maybe even better than, Lotus!
It's beginning to seem that I will have to eat my words.
