The SCO version of WP uses Motif, and takes full advantage of the Unix
environment to integrate itself with email, databases, etc. This makes it 
a good choice for showing commercial applications running on Linux. The 
DOS version wouldn't have anywhere near this coolness value.

For actual production use, I suppose the DOS wp may be a better choice 
than vi and troff for standard business purposes...  :-/
