5.0 out of 5 stars Great Product March 18, 2009
I bought Ability Office 4 years ago at an Office Depot.

The programs themselves are not exact replicas of their similar counterparts. If you need to use the extra bells and whistles in photoshop, excel, etc., then I suggest getting the actual product. But for basic purposes, this program is awesome, especially for home use and college students.

Mine has Ability Draw (like paint), Ability Launcher (never used it, but I think it's a way to open various Ability Programs), Ability Photo Album (never used it), Ability Photopaint Studio (like photoshop), Ability Presentations (like PowerPoint), Ability Spreadsheet (like Excel), Ability Write (like Word). You can save your image/document/presentation/etc. in many different formats to be compatible with almost any major software.

While I bought it for the spreadsheets because it would save it as an excel document (whereas Works would not), I use it more now for the photopaint studio (which saves things as a png file...awesome).

I originally had Windows XP and it worked awesome on that. But, now I have Windows Vista and a whole new computer (thanks to a power surge), and there are a few bugs with it now. I only really use the photopaint studio now on Vista, and the main bug is when I delete a layer, the program shuts down soon after. But I can select the whole image and hit the delete button creating a blank layer just fine. Sometimes I have a hard time getting the scanner to be recognized, and that might be more because my printer/scanner is wireless. The other thing that doesn't function on Vista at all but did on XP is the PDF. I don't know if that's because I switched computers or not, or because I switched operating systems. I can't get any programs that saved as a PDF to work on this new computer at all. I haven't tried to figure it out because I rarely want to do that. I thought I'd mention all this since Vista isn't listed for compatibility.
