I have never like the Wordperfect people. They killed my friend's 
business. He had  vaxes that he rented time on, also charged a huge 
amount of money per seat week for WPS training.

The boys from Utah released Wordperrect for the VAX and put him out of 

(OK the PCs helped too , but the training was his last source of income)
