Description from the packaging.

A state of the art word processor, spell checker, graphics editor, file manager and more!

GEOS 2.0 opens your Commodore 64 or 128 to a new world of integrated and graphically oriented applications. Easy-to-use icons, pull-down menus and windows allow the beginning user to feel right at home with the computer. More advanced users will find the power and sophistication needed for any job. And the "What You See Is What You Get" orientation means there's no surprises between screen and printer.

Best of all, GEOS products are fully compatible with each other. This means you can exchange data with other GEOS products such as the database, spreadsheet, desktop publisher and others. GEOS 2.0 is just the beginning of a powerful new environment for Commodore 64 and 128 owners.
