Wordstar and New Word
I liked it. But it didn't run well in NTVDM on NT4.0
So I updated a clone in Modula-2 (on DOS, written maybe 1991) to run native in Win32 in a console in 1996. I added ability to use a mouse and double click on a word, and have split screen or single screen and list of open files. If a file of same name existed it opened it, or if not offered to create it. Each file normally a chapter.
I used 3rd party spelling checker on Files.
But by 2002 was using Windows Word for all editing with all the stupid options turned off. I guess no-one showed him the Preferences / Options / Tools menus. I'd wonder what options his Web Browser on separate PC uses. To day I might use Libre Office to write a book.
Perhaps Word Processors should have "Profiles". (Novel, Text to upload to Blog, Flier etc).
I think it shows a great lack of curiosity as he can achieve exactly what he wants on Linux, OS X or any Windows version.
