    Hi, I just purchased a Duo Powerbook 230 (great machine BTW, I'm happy) with OS 7.5.5. in a couple of minutes (I'm doing the full install)

    I read that Word 5.1a should run on it.

    Does anyone know where I can find Word 5.1 ?
    Or is there any word processing software (freeware/shareware)
    that I should consider?

    Remember, the Duo 230 is a 68030 with 16MB ram and 80MB HD :)

    Any links would be appreciated (you may also reply off thread)

    Duo 230 is sure a great machine! (I've still got two of them and a 280 too!)
    Word 5.1 would run great,
    but i Claris Works 4 is much better.
    With CW 4 you'll aslo get database, spreedsheets and drawing features!
    Unfortunaterly both CW4 and Word 5.1 aren't freeware.
    CW4 shouldn't cost much on eBay, i think.

    Check out these places to find more info and freeware for your pb duo
