My first word processor was from Wang called “Word Processor” and then
IBM’s “Displaywriter”. I tried “Wordstar” originally called
“Wordmaster” but way too complicated. When desktop publishing came
along WYSIWYG printing was made possible - the writer’s true
handmaiden! In the microcomputer world, classic computing, it was
“Smartwriter” on the Coleco ADAM. Those were the days!

Happy computing.
