Gag. I loathed Wordstar. The first word processor I ever voluntarily used,
and still prefer to Dirt, er, Word, was WordPerfect 5. That was

vi. emacs is a great (I suppose) windowing operating system masquerading
as a text editor.

Wonder if I could configure the *best* text editor ever to run under wine:


* My old criteria for evaluating a word processor: since the primary
function of a word processor is to replace a typewriter, if I couldn't sit
down and write and print out a letter inside of 5 min, then its interface
and bells & whistles have overwhelmed its primary function.

Btw, in ->'95<-, in a review of word processors, PC Mag noted that 90% of
the users, *then*, never used more than 10% of the capabilities, and of
the remaining 10%, they used some of them no more than 10% of the time.

But we need 100M+ word processors....
