Agree whole-heartedly. Where is netware today? Where is Word Perfect today? Both worked well, When Novell acquired WP at the 5.x-6.0 juncture and then put out WP 6.5, 6.5 was a great product for its time and would run circles around word 1.0f and 2.0. And today? Go figure...

That's mostly due to M$ bundling Word with new machines
to drive WP out of the market (making Word *appear* to
be free, whereas WP would cost extra.)

The whole purpose of this, of course, was to eliminate
a very popular cross-platform application, thereby
driving everyone into Windows whether they wanted to
be there or not.
