Microsoft Encarta 2009 Full 'LINK' Version Free 14



Microsoft Encarta is a discontinued digital multimedia encyclopedia published by Microsoft from 1993 to 2009. Originally sold on CD-ROM or DVD, it was also available online via annual subscription, although later articles could also be viewed for free online with advertisements.[1] By 2008, the complete English version, Encarta Premium, consisted of more than 62,000 articles,[2] numerous photos and illustrations, music clips, videos, interactive content, timelines, maps, atlases and homework tools.

Microsoft published similar encyclopedias under the Encarta trademark in various languages, including German, French, Spanish, Dutch, Italian, Portuguese and Japanese. Localized versions contained contents licensed from national sources and more or less content than the full English version. For example, the Dutch-language version had content from the Dutch Winkler Prins encyclopedia.[3]


In March 2009, Microsoft announced it was discontinuing both the Encarta disc and online versions. The MSN Encarta site was closed on October 31, 2009, in all countries except Japan, where it was closed on December 31, 2009.[4][5] Microsoft continued to operate the Encarta online dictionary until 2011.[6]


In 2000, the full Encarta content became available on the World Wide Web to subscribers, with a subset available for free to anyone.[15] In 2006, Websters Multimedia, a Bellevue, Washington subsidiary of London-based Websters International Publishers, took over maintenance of Encarta from Microsoft.[19] The last version was Encarta Premium 2009, released in August 2008.[2]


The demise of Encarta was widely attributed to competition from the free and user-generated Wikipedia,[20][21][22] which grew to be larger than Encarta from its early beginnings in 2001[23] thanks to popularization by web search services like Google.[15] At the time of its closure in 2009, Encarta had about 62,000 articles, most behind a paywall, while the English-language Wikipedia had over 2.8 million articles in open access.


Each summer Microsoft published a new version of Encarta. However, despite the inclusion of news-related and some supplementary articles, Encarta's contents had not been changed substantially in its later years. Besides the yearly update, the installed offline copy could be updated over the Internet for a certain period for free depending on the edition. Some articles (usually about 2,000) were updated to reflect important changes or events. When the update period expired, an advertisement prompting to upgrade to the new version was displayed to the user occasionally.


By expanding to two compact discs, the new Deluxe Edition lets you experience almost twice as much multimedia content as the single-CD version, enjoy exclusive interactive features, explore extensive links to the Internet, and receive 18 months of free online updates of the Encarta Yearbook and Web Links (online connection fees may apply).
