WordPerfect 4.1 for the Amiga was the first word processor to allow indefinite windowed documents to be open, and versions of WordPerfect for SunOS, Solaris, DataGeneral, Macintosh, Linux, HP-UX, AIX, SCO, SCO OpenServer?, NeXT, OS/2, and DigitalUNIX, among others, were also available. Interplatform file compatibility is very high. A built-in "paging" system allows WordPerfect to gracefully handle extremely large documents, an ability particularly valuable when running on machines with limited memory. Its speed was another feature; it was often cited as the only word processor that could keep up with 100 wpm+ typists.
