    +1. Back in the day (around 1983) when my school mates and I had brand new floppy only 5150 PCs and Epson MX-80 or Okidata ML82 dot matrix printers we all used PC-Write to write our school papers.

    Kermit was also popular for BBS access and downloads, and for terminal emulation when remotely logging into the school computers (which were DECSYSTEM-20 systems at the time).

    Can't say I've come across one (and I've been a Linux user since v0.95).

    I started one as part of my ALFC (lua scripted two pan filemanager https://github.com/stu/alfc), the biggest problem is ncurses sucks vs dos's text mode memory addressing. you can fire it up as "alfc -list" to get 'list.com' mode. I never bothered to implement hex view mode in it tho.

    Oh man memories:

    Game: Castle Adventure, Not much else on the SW side until Wolfenstein - I think that was the point at which quality/high production value games started being offered as SW (really one level demos but you get the idea) It exploded after that, Wolfenstein, Quake, Captain Comic, Jack Jazzrabbit...

    Utilities: Telix to be replaced by Telemate, Compushow, not really SW but Dir Magic distributed for free by PC Computing, HS Link (not a full fledged program but man when that protocol came on the scene...), DCF, and too many others I have forgotten...
    Current Wish List: 1. IBM 7531 Industrial Series PC 2. NEC MultiSync XL (JC-2001) Monitor 3. Copy II PC Enhanced Option Board (the one with the toggle switch on the back) 4. MicroSolutions MatchPoint AND/OR UniDOS card 5. Compaq 14" VGA CRT Monitor (the one that came with the SystemPro)

    If you have any of the above for sale please PM me. Thank you!

I was pleasantly surprised at how well it works.

    Looks interesting but confusing. The DOS pages say the SW is free to hobbyist but when you go to get a hobbyist license they want $30. I sent them an email - lets see if anything comes back. I may just add them to my list of SW authors who have sites up but don't respond ( a la modem doctor and compushow).
