If that were true we'd all still be running Word Perfect on CP/M!

Again you miss the obvious.  If Word were not orders of magnitude more
useful and capable than WordPerfect on CP/M, we might still be using
WordPerfect albeit on Vista.  But that is not the case and WordPerfect
is dead as a dodo.

AFAIR, WordPerfect on CP/M was particularly useless because it did not
even exist.  As opposed to, say, WordStar on CP/M.

I think you are correct. But the point is valid even if you substitute WordPerfect on MS-DOS.
