Every word is a Star  
It figures that a conservative like William F. Buckley Jr. used WordStar until the day he died. But time-binding sf writers do it too.

Thanx to andrewducker

I'll confess, I still miss Word Perfect.

WordPerfect is still around, from Corel. Though the newer versions (they're up to at least version 10, I think) resemble Word more than the hallowed WordPerfect of old, I think they still offer a toggle to emulate the classic WordPerfect 5.1 interface. (5.1 is the version almost everyone, including me, means when they say they miss WordPerfect.)

I have WordPerfect X8. It is NOT like MS Word. Not at all. I use MS Word a lot for work and hate it mightily. The difference is distinct. WordPerfect give you total control. MS Word tries to guess what you want and gives you that, but gives you no easy way to refuse those guesses when they are uselessly wrong.

Long ago I used WordPerfect 5.1, and the new version of WordPerfect is still as intuitive and not that different, although it offers many more features.

And best of all, reveal codes is still there!
