If you can find a copy of the old shareware "Galaxy Write" for MS-DOS,
this was a good word processor for me. When I was at university, I
used Galaxy Write to write my term papers. Not too dissimilar from
WordPerfect 5.1 for DOS (granted, not as powerful.)

I tried to find a download, but it doesn't seem to be at simtel
anymore. Actually, simtel no longer seems to have any MS-DOS downloads
these days. Maybe Eric or another webmaster can take simtel off the
"Links" page.

If you want to see what Galaxy looked like, I used to have screenshots
on my web page. Some kind person has mirrored them for me:
