Although you *can* keep it, recognizing that Microsoft Works is sort
of like a junior version of Microsoft Office, there really isn't any
reason to. It's unlikely that you would want the stripped-down
functionality of Works when you have available the greater
functionality of Office.
On the other hand, there's really no downside to keeping it, unless
you're short of disk space, so there's no reason to recommend
uninstalling it either.
