EasyWriter is a word processor released when the IBM PC was announced in 1981?; written by Capn Software, I believe, which also produced a version of Forth; see Byte Magazine, January, 1982, p. 62.

EasyWriter was not received well and was soon replaced by better programs, such as WordStar, which was ported from CP/M. EasyWriter was probably selected by IBM in its rush to introduce the IBM PC.
