Just for the record Floyd, WordPerfect was not a Windows app. It started
out on CPM then ran on DOS, Unix, OS2 and then later Windows. Up until
recently I was using it on a older Linux (Red Hat 6.x) box. Sadly, now
the only easy way to get it is for Windows. It was and still is the best

The first editor called WordPerfect was "WordPefect 2.0"
for the IBM PC running PC-DOS. It was an assembly
language program which had been re-written from an
