In the early 1990s Tempus Word was developed for the Atari. In 2003 former employees and users found together, to exceed the life cycle of the product by using an emulator.

Updates are only of interest to former users who need to preserve existing documents in their original printing. The trial version offered here, allows to export existing documents as an RTF file. Special properties will be lost, but you will save the content for further processing.
