Microsoft's digital encyclopedia. Launched in 1993 on CD-ROM, Encarta was initially based on the Funk & Wagnalls Encyclopedia and later augmented with the inclusion of Collier's and New Merit Scholar's Encyclopedias. With approximately 60,000 articles, compared to Wikipedia's nearly three million, Encarta was discontinued in 2009.
