At one time AppleWorks was free. Is it still free, and if so, where can it be downloaded for 10.3.9? My guess is that it's no longer free, but the updates are.

If that's the case, I'll just continue to use NeoOffice.

    AppleWorks is not free for download excluding updates, or bundled with any retail Mac OS X version or Intel Mac.

    Hi Allan,

    AppleWorks has never been free, although it was included as bundled software with consumer Mac models from the Performa to the G5 iMac. "Bundled" isn't "free", it's "included in the price of the hardware."

    If your computer is an iMac, eMac, iBook or Performa, and came with OS X 10.3, it's quite likely AppleWorks is included in the bundled software on your original install disks. It will be an earlier version than 6.2.9, but any AW 6 version may be updated to 6.2.9 using the downloadable updater.
