Native WP for Unix existed back in the days of WP/DOS and the like.

WP ran on a huge number of platforms.  I still have WP 4.1 for Amiga laying

"While available in DOS and Microsoft Windows versions, its popularity was based
in part on the fact that it was available for a wide variety of computers and
operating systems, including Mac OS, Linux, the Apple IIe, a separate version
for the Apple IIgs, most popular versions of Unix, VMS, Data General,
System/370, AmigaOS, Atari ST, OS/2, and NeXTSTEP."
