Heh! I haven't used WordStar for a loooooooooooooong time. Since
2.x days, I think. On a PCjr. I fondly remember modifying the executable
in debug to change options. Then a new version came out that had an app
that did essentially the same thing. And then WordStar 2000 came out and
I switched to word perfect 5.1.

To say that WordStar had a very strong effect on me is an understatement.
I *still* use WordStar key bindings in my editor (joe under linux,
quick edit under DOS, tse32 under GameOS). I just don't have the patience
nor the inclination to learn new stuff. Just ^KB ^KK and the rest for me.
