      I first started using WordPerfect on a DOS machine. I subsequently
      bought a Mac for use at home, and I bought the Mac version of
      WordPerfect. The DOS program could read the Mac WP files seamlessly,
      as I recall, and vice versa.

      WP for the Mac was very Mac-like. WP for DOS was, well, DOS-like.
      If you know the commands, or had the template for the function keys,
      it was a fine word-processing program. WP for the Mac was a
      pleasure. Lovely graphic interface, very intuitive.

      Still using WP for the Mac, thanks to folks here.
