PIE was blazing, but right on the edge of too hard to master. It was
basically an optimized port of a editor from Sperry Rand. It was also my
friends test mule for learning how to write the fastest code on an Apple
II, so as he learned, the program improved to pretty much instant
response. Its hard to describe just how slow everything else felt like,
and in many ways still is. Zero lag is so sweet.
Many professional users preferred it well into the PC age. I only
switched to the MAC+ because of display and peripheral issues with the
Page 10 has an ad for it, and shows a partial set of instructions.
