I used to love Wordstar - WordPerfect was pretentious!

and the more superior sorts who liked WordStar (because you could do everything from the home keys and the function keys were mostly not required

Function keys, you had function keys!?  :o

Yeah really! In our day having a separate key labeled ALT was considered posh.  :P

Quarrel Pro? Good gracious!  :o

Do we have anybody out there still using Visicalc, Supercalc, Lucid 3D or Javelin?

Maybe we should start a thread for people who still run vintage and classic apps? I'd love to know who they are, and what they're running.  ;D

Well, I still have Lucid 3D on my computer and until a few years ago used it when I needed to do something simple. To this day there's nothing faster. Unfortunately I did have to give up Desqview and Magellan when Windows came along.
