I can remember writing college papers with Clarisworks.
And there was Wordperfect from Corel.
Although, I'm uncertain whether these were before or after MSOffice.
I saw them both before I ever heard of MSOffice, though.
Let's see...Clarisworks was released 1984.
StarOffice (Sun) was released in 1985.
Lotus 1 2 3 was released in 1983, but apparently Lotus Notes wasn't until 1989.
Wordperfect for DOS was released in 1989.
And MSOffice was released in 1991.
Of course, neither Staroffice (Sun), Lotus (IBM) nor Wordperfect
(Corel), had a full suite, initially,
as far as I am aware, but Clarisworks/Appleworks did, well before MSOffice.
