"Back in 1990, I wrote a DOS text editor..."

Didn't everyone back then? Seem to recall writing one as part of my HNC.

Text editors, Word Processing programs etc have become way too complicated. Most people don't want or need all the functionality that Word provides. All the added complexity makes their life harder not simpler.

George R.R Martin apparently uses WordStar 4.0 to write GoT - keep it simple, dude!
