TAKE THE BYTE OUT OF THE SEARCH FOR AN ORIGINAL MOTHER'S DAY GIFT; MICROSOFT SOLUTION SERIES FOR THE '90S WORKING MOM

 TAKE THE BYTE OUT OF THE SEARCH FOR AN ORIGINAL MOTHER'S DAY GIFT;
 MICROSOFT SOLUTION SERIES FOR THE '90S WORKING MOM
 LOS ANGELES, April 23 /PRNewswire/ -- The U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics


reports that more than 20 million women are working moms with children under 18. Balancing both career and family, these moms are experiencing demands on both their personal and professional lives not felt by moms of previous generations. For Mother's Day, the '90s mom will appreciate gifts that will help expedite personal and professional tasks easily, leaving more time to spend with her family.
 Since many of these working moms have access to personal computers both at work and home, why not give Microsoft's Solution Series for Mother's Day, a powerful collection of software tools designed for the home and small business.
 The series includes Microsoft Works for Windows, for writing letters, creating address books, labels, spreadsheets and designing charts; Money, a money management program, operates like a checkbook to give an error-free snapshot of the family's (or small business') financial fitness; and Publisher, an entry-level desktop publishing program, brings the skill of creating original, sophisticated documents to people who have viewed desktop publishing as an activity reserved only for graphic designers.
 In addition to making the perfect Mother's Day gift, Publisher is an ideal tool to prepare Mother's Day cards and other special occasion needs. Its "PageWizards" feature acts as a built-in graphic designer to help create custom greeting cards, invitations, newsletters, flyers, brochures and even paper aeroplanes.
 "If you can draw a straight line, you can use Publisher," said Dave Perry, Microsoft product manager. "It's like having a designer in a box who coaches you along the way."
 Any of the Solution Series programs are great for Mother's Day gifts; but they are also perfect for parents who want to encourage creativity and family participation. And, that's better than wasting time in front of a television set.
