Not sure if we are referring to the same time frame.  What I meant is that Word Perfect was the word processor of choice in most businesses when MS Word was not yet released.  But the overwhelming majority of businesses were using IBM compatible PCs running the MS OS.

Then when MS released Word, it was not better than Word Perfect to the extent to have the business users who already were familiar with Word Perfect make the switch.

Actually it was first Windows version of Word that won the battle. Wordperfect didnt release Windows version until much later and at that point it was too little too late.

Lotus also failed to provide Windows version of their spreadsheet in time betting the wrong horse ( OS/2 ).
