This has probably been talked to death on here, but at least one more
Why do you think APPPLE has refused to get into the word processing
game? I am reasonably new to APPLE (say about 5 years) so I don't
know of the history.
Did Apple have at one time a real word processor (please don't say
Appleworks I called that about the same as pages)?
Was it a money pit? (did they loose a lot of $$ on it?)
Word Perfect is a respectable (best in breed?) word processor. Some
might characterize it as *BEST* period. I have yet seen anything else
come close to WP. MS has their word processor its a poor has been, IMO.
Its clear the current owner of WP is not going to upgrade it to the
INTEL, I can't understand why APPLE does not pick it up an run with
it, especially since there is NO (that I have heard of) word
processing program on the drawing boards at Apple.
