Almost all of Ancient Greek and Latin literature are available on CD-ROM -- Thesaurus Linguae Graecae's CD-ROM #E (ancient Greek texts) contains 1823 authors and collections from the 8th century BC to the 1453 AD.   The Packard Humanities Institute's CD-ROM 5.3 contains Latin authors, and also seven versions of the Bible. Packard Humanities Institute also provides a third CD-ROM with collections of Greek Papyri and Inscriptions (CD-ROM "PHI 7").

None of these CD-ROMs comes equipped with software for viewing and searching; They simply contain the files in "ISO 9660" format, further encoded in a format known as "Beta Code". MUSAIOS provides a means to view the texts in a format similar to the printed page, and to perform searches.

MUSAIOS 2010 will run on Windows XP, Windows Vista, and Windows 7, both 32-bit and 64-bit versions. MUSAIOS 2010 uses the Unicode fonts included with Windows that support Polytonic Greek. The WinGreek font is no longer necessary.
