EZ As a Word Processor
Ted is a text processor running under X Windows on Unix/Linux systems. Ted was developed as a standard easy word processor, having the role of Wordpad on MS-Windows. Since then, Ted has evolved to a real word processor that still has the same easy appearance as the original. The possibility to type a letter, a note or a report on a Unix/Linux machine is clearly missing. Only too often, you have to turn to MS-Windows machine to write a letter or a document. Ted was made to make it possible to edit rich text documents on Unix/Linux in a wysiwyg way. RTF files from Ted are fully compatible with MS-Word. Additionally, Ted also is an RTF to PostScript and an RTF to Acrobat PDF converter.
