This is the conclusion after reading all the reviews of previous products of Encarta and Encyclopaedia Britannica and of my own experience. Content wise, the EB is superior than Encarta. Yet EB software needs to be improved. I wrote a very critical review for the EB 2005 DVD. Please read that review as the same must be said regading Encarta.IF Encarta, EB and other Encyclopaedias (at least the software editions) merge it would be great. That would create the sole SUPERENCYCLOPAEDIA. Another Internet/Super-Information-Highway! Please make this matter public.
