Microsoft Encarta No More

Microsoft Encarta is closing down. It has been around since 1993! This is something I never thought I would hear but with free online encyclopedias who would want to pay. I purchased Encarta twice and it was a neat thing to have, very convenient. No more going to the neighbor to use their encyclopedia or going to the library. Just pop in a CD and voila, you have all the information you need. We didn't have an encyclopedia when I was growing up, we couldn't afford it. It wasn't until much later that we finally got the basics, dictionary etc. That's why when I saw it for the first time I thought it was the coolest thing ever! Pin It Now!


  1. OMG I remember Encarta. I loved it. You are so right about having all the info there. Very convenient.


  2. Yes too bad it came out when I was already grown up with kids, lol. I could've avoided my neighbors evil eye, she was a total BITCH, lol.
