I'm looking around for old Next software, and I'm wondering what the best way to source it is. I've got Openstep on a VM and my old cube is going to be shipped down to me soon.

Things I'd like to get a hold of
* Wordperfect
* Mathematica (thought I'd found it, but no reply from the guy running blackhole)
* Doom (if it runs on white hardware)
* SoftPC (for when I get an Openstep-capable laptop)

NeXTstep Doom (version 1.2 for Black and White) can be found here ftp://ftp.cs.tu-berlin.de/pub/NeXT/games/apps/Doom1_2_FAT.tar.gz.
Not sure whether it runs on OpenStep though.

Mathematica license is bound to hardware, activating it may be hard today.

I tried to dig up Mathematica for NS 3.3, but I could not find any version for Intel CPUs. I have a working archive for m68k though, but this will have to wait until the guys working on Previous are done  8)

WordPerfect (works on Intel) here:

If anyone has a later version, I hope they'll let us know.
