xywrite was a lot more than a text editor. It was an advanced word processing system that, within a purely text-based environment, anticipated many of the capabilities of today's web browsers.
And it was FAST!
But much of its speed and power came from implementing its own hardware interfaces internally, rather than relying on the operating system for screen and print drivers. That was not sustainable as the personal computer industry expanded exponentially and also moved to a graphical environment.
