WordPerfect was bundled as well, and so was FrameMaker. I still consider the 
NeXT versions of these to be the best of the lot, even though both were 
multi-platform software. I particularly liked that you could open a frame in 
FrameMaker and write some EPS into it, click out of the frame and it would be 
rendered as part of the document. This lent itself to great custom integration 
when used with Services (vastly underused and almost hidden in OS X) - you 
could write a script that spit back EPS and register it as a service. This is 
basically how the TeX service worked.
