My PC came fro Mesh and I can't remember what was already installed, office wise. Certainly the PC came with a 60 day trial for MS Office but the Works CD was in a sealled envelope.
My dad's notebook an Acer, had no word proccessing applications of any kind.
Would Mesh be a sufficiently 'major player', in Microsofts eyes, to warrant it's own 'special' version of Works 8?
There was no problem registering Works on the Notebook. We even downloaded an update, this must have been the most recent as it was done yesterday. The downloaded version still had similar ommissions to the original.
