I had MO2 back in the day (I was in high school).
It was a really useful package.
Excellent value for money!

A bit clunky looking back at it! I think my 464 (second hand) came with a copy, but I didn't really use it (being young and not having a reason to use it).


Obviously dedicated software for each task was far better, but for simple home stuff it was probably fine.
