Integrated Software

If you're looking for the Swiss Army knife of Macintosh applications—one set of programs that does it all—integrated software is the answer. These programs combine many of the basic software tools that people use every day. Depending on the integrated suite you choose, you'll get a collection of interrelated programs, such as a word processor, a spreadsheet, a database, an e-mail and newsgroup client, drawing tools, and a presentation program.

When I wrote about integrated software in the Macintosh Bible, sixth edition, only two serious contenders were in the category: Microsoft Office and ClarisWorks (now known as AppleWorks). Well, nothing has changed. If you want integrated software for your Mac, you still have the same two choices. Both products, however, are mature, widely available, and widely used.
