WordPerfect for Linux and Unix character terminals

WordPerfect for Linux in a terminal
Huge thanks to Paul Kater in the Netherlands for finding these: WordPerfect for Unix character terminals and WordPerfect for Linux.

These are classic WordPerfect, without the WYSIWYG UI, but given that WordPerfect was the gold standard in word processors, I’ve no doubt that it’ll beat many of its newer rivals for power and functionality. It’ll also be a darned sight cleaner in mark-up code.

We have Eudora finally supporting Unicode (almost) in the form of Aurora (in alpha), while WordPerfect is available to another audience … Finally, the good stuff is spreading again after decades of mediocrity by monopolists. It’s why you can’t trust anyone with monopoly power to make your life better.
