Originally written by Arnor, Ltd, for the Amstrad CPC464, and subsequently ported to other platforms.
One of the most successful British word processor programs, developed by Peterborough-based Arnor Ltd between 1985 and 1995, Protext has sold over 30,000 copies. Original written for the Amstrad CPC464, Protext was subsequently released for the Amstrad PCW8256, the PC, the Atari ST, Commodore Amiga and the Acorn Archimedes.
When Arnor closed in 1995 it seemed that Protext had become another British casualty of the fast-evolving world of computers. But a group of Protext users with professional experience from other areas of business were not prepared to let it go. They formed a partnership called Protext Software with the copyright owners and original programmers and relaunched the program in an new version (v6.7) for the PC. Now, in July 2008, Protext has been issued as freeware and can be downloaded from this web site, completely free of charge.
Version for PCs has recently (December 2008) been made available as freeware.
