It may be old, but those who started with it back in the day are glad they didn't have to switch to EXCEL since this version is available. Still think they should have kept up and stayed in the game!

It is performing as expected, albeit the expectation is relatively modest. Need it for old ...... worksheets.

HASH(0xa009c00c) out of 5 stars Same great old lotus, but beware of caveat. April 1 2011
By Rose M. Versaggi - Published on
Verified Purchase
I wanted an entirely new version of Lotus Smart Suite for my new Windows 7, 64 bit computer.
It installed perfectly, and worked the same as always, but then noticed that after I had used
Lotus, the next time I tried to boot the computer, I couldn't. It took 4-5 tries to get a
successful boot.

Bottom line, Lotus won't work well with Windows 7 64 bit O/S unless you also install Virtual XP.
Once I removed the program, my computer problems resolved.

So, if you are willing to install Virtual XP on your Windows 7 Professional Version, you're good to go.
I opted not to go that route.

HASH(0x9ff156fc) out of 5 stars Works on Windows 8.1 Feb. 17 2014
By Larry Cooke - Published on

As a long time XP and Lotus 123 user, I was concerned that this software would not function on my new Windows 8.1 PC. Installation was easy, and my transferred spreadsheet from my XP computer seem to be working just fine. I also transfer some Word documents, and was very happy to learn that Lotus Word Pro was able to handle these also. This will save me from purchasing MS Word for my new system, please note that word processing is a very minor part of my computing.

HASH(0xa006f060) out of 5 stars Lotus still works for me July 23 2013

I have used Lotus for about 20 years. My old computer died, and I needed a new version of Lotus to go with the new one. Unfortunately, Windows 8 supposedly is not compatible with this version of Lotus, but a friend managed to install it anyway, and it works just fine.

HASH(0xa01bf6b4) out of 5 stars Lotus Smart Suite still available for Lotus users Jan. 21 2013

Lotus Smart Suite still works well as always. However, these CDs do not install automatically on Windows 7 machines. It is necessary to go to the installation .exe file on the disk and click on that directly for it to install.

HASH(0xa01bfb40) out of 5 stars The Passing of a Giant Oct. 25 2013
By J. D. Spencer - Published on
Brief quote from Wikipedia: "In May 2013, IBM announced the withdrawal of SmartSuite. Marketing of the product will end in June 2013, followed by all support ceasing in September 2014. IBM has also announced that there will be no replacement for SmartSuite.[3]"

It was - and still is - a great program. But the same genius types who let Gates License DOS to them instead of buying it from him apparently can't see the value in Lotus (either).

My Windows 7 Professional 64 bit OS - HAS an emulator for just about every previous version of Windows ever created. It's built into this version of Windows and requires no additional downloads. While it does not always work perfectly, it has made the use of Lotus Suite 9.8 entirely viable.

In the 1990's, "Windows Magazine" - in one huge article - reviewed ALL current databases. Lotus Approach stood alone in a class by itself at the very top. Microsoft Access was a very poor second-choice waaaaay down from Approach. All others were in a collective pile at the bottom. That was the last time an honest evaluation of Approach was given. I would never try to teach someone how to use any database EXCEPT for Approach, which takes about 5 minutes of "showing" and the newbie is off and running. By comparison, other databases are a study in the egos of their authors- and marketing is a big part of the equation.

As of this writing, the only real problem I have with any part of 9.8 is my wheel-mouse wheel doesn't scroll in the Lotus 123 spreadsheet. (I'm just too lazy to fix it.)
