Compton's Interactive Encyclopedia is a great alternative to Microsoft's
Encarta. Although I use both encyclopedia's, they both always have more and different
information on a certain topic. Compton's 1997 is one of three of the most well known
encyclopedia's available. Along with Grolier and Encarta, Compton's is a wide selling,
informative, and very complex, yet easy to use multimedia encyclopedia. The word
multimedia can't be stressed enough when I talk about Compton's 1997. Literally everything
has some sort of multimedia article. Whether you want to see F-16's soaring above
mountains, or if you want to hear folk music, its all here on Compton's Interactive
The program is very user friendly, and rather inexpensive. There are almost zero bugs to be found in the software itself, and the only problem is the Electronic Registration which messed up my mouse the first time I ran the encyclopedia.
I recommend this software. It will help you research the amazon, finish your science homework, and watch movies on the Assassination of JFK, along with much, much more, all on one CD-ROM.
