WordPerfect for DOS, in the opinion of many knowledgeable users, is still the greatest program ever written. Some of its features have not been matched even by the latest Windows software, and its interface remains unequaled for efficiency and elegance. Its support for multiple font formats has not yet been equaled by any other program or operating system, and its support for multiple alphabets, languages, and symbol sets has only been equaled by the latest versions of Windows.
This site was created as a way to share printer drivers and other files that can be of help to anyone who wants to continue to use WordPerfect for DOS in the twenty-first century.
Every user of WordPerfect for DOS under Windows 2000 or XP should buy a $US20 copy of Tame from www.tamedos.com. This program speeds keyboard input and improves compatibility for WPDOS and other DOS applications under Windows 2000 and XP.
WordPerfect for DOS is no longer marketed by Corel. Fully legal replacement and upgrade copies of WordPerfect 5.1+ for DOS and WordPerfect 6.2 for DOS may be purchased on CD-R discs from Carol Reese at firstname.lastname@example.org, who has permission from Corel to make these sales. Copies can only be shipped to addresses in the United States; in other countries, probably the best way to obtain a copy is through eBay or a local user group.
