    I love(d) WordStar!!! it was the first program I paid (what little money I was making as an enlisted USAF medical technician!) for (well, besides MS-DOS 2.0). Got it to work with a typewriter / combination interface (Brother typewriter). As a touch typist, it was a perfect program for me. Can't find the keyboard with CONTROL key next to A anymore though.

    I bought an Apple11, a copy of Wordstar, and a Diablo printer for about 6600 when they first appeared. As a writer, it saved me endless time - in spite of all the Diablo bugs - in writing and especially in re-writing. Wordstar was an excellent program - way ahead of its time - and the best word processing program i ever used. I was sad to see it abandoned and have to turn to Microsoft Word (ugh) on the IBM clones. It wouldn't run on anything Apple brought out: Lisa, etc.
