What was your first word processor?

Mine was probably either Word Writer or Atari Writer, although I also mastered vi at about the same time.

Wordstar.

Hey, it did the job!

Word Star, and then Word Perfect.

Dammit. I still miss Word Perfect.

Are you restricting to personal computers? The first computer document generation system I used was nroff/troff on a DEC 10.

On personal machines, the first real word processing software I used was WriteNow for Macintosh. I wrote my PhD thesis on it in 1988-89, using some third-party add-ons for equations.
