I loved working with both, WP 5.1 and WordStar.  I moved to Unix
totally and started using Joe, which I loved until I started learning
Vim (a hell to learn, maybe, but easy and fast once you understand its
way of functioning and change your mind).  Together with TeX for
processing documents (articles, books, letters, posters, slides) and R
for statistics, mathematics and graphics, is a beast.  I doubt I will
ever switch to a different editor.
