Mr. Draper implemented the first FORTH language on the Apple II, utilizing it to write a word processor. After modifying it for commercial sale, Easy Writer was born. It took him only 20 minutes to port FORTH to the PC, and 48 hours later, Easy Writer was delivered to IBM.
Note: some reports claim EasyWriter was actually written in jail, while Draper was serving time for his "phone phreaking" activities as the infamous "Cap'n Crunch"
