I used to work for a guy who resold WordPerfect for VMS, but I haven't
seen that in the wild since 1988 (he showed me a box with a media kit
and a 50-seat license, I forget the exact amount but I think it was
around $30,000).

So I've seen it, but I never used it myself.  Other places I worked,
we used MASS-11.  _That_ I have.
