Is (was) Wordstar really good? I keep hearing that many professional writers used it but I never got the chance to try it myself.


I’ve heard of Wordstar before but I’ve never tried it myself. (I’m from the Wordperfect 5.1 generation I guess. Which is actually still the favorite editor of a friend of mine). But I know that Joe editor uses similar key sequences so at least it was inspiring in that sense as well. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Joe’s_Own_Editor#Description_of_features

A few good features of Wordstar seemed to be, file locking, spell checker and very small memory footprint.
