George R. R. Martin Explains Why He Writes Game of Thrones in DOS

Sometimes, you need the tool that's best suited to the job in hand. And for George R. R. Martin, that means using an archaic word processor—WordStar 4.0, running on DOS, no less—to write Game of Thrones. He explained why to Conan last night. (Gaming, Video)

So because he can't figure out how to change the options on new word processors, he uses DOS? And he can't just not use the internet on a modern computer?

Well, if that's what makes you comfortable. But the reasons are still silly.

I don't need to read the article or see the interview. He writes it in DOS because he is old. The End.

Lol he probably likes fixing at the "abyssal darkness of a DOS screen for inspiration
