That was Linux Wordperfect 9.0. Linux WordPerfect 8.0 and 8.1 were native Linux versions. If I have to use emulation, I'll use latest Windows WordPerfect version with Parallels or VM Fusion.
My interest in the Linux version was due to Linux and Mac OS X being POSIX compliant, in the hopes that it might be possible to tweak the native Linux version to run on Mac OS X natively thus eliminating the need for Parallels, VM Fusion, or Crossover/WINE.
