I agree; I have worked contentedly with the windows version of XyWrite for
years. Ran it in Windows 3.x, Windows 95 and Windows 98.
And I started with the very earliest DOS versions, too.
The only DOS version I couldn't stand was the one everyone else on the list
seems to like, XyWrite 4. All XY4 ever gave me was grief.

I know it is un-PC to say this around here, but I quite *like* the Windows
version. In combination with XY-DOS it works great for me.
After a while, you learn to avoid its limitations and to enjoy its advantages.
What is hideous about it is, of course, the install rigamarole you have to
go through to get it onto a Windows 9x system.
