Amí - brief summary
Ami was the name of a word processing program developed and marketed by Samna in the late 1980s, which was later purchased by Lotus Software in 1990. Shortly after its introduction, the name of the program was changed to "Ami Pro". Ami Pro was a significant competitor to Microsoft Word and WordPerfect Corporation's WordPerfect during the late 1980s and early 1990s. The developers of Ami Pro introduced a number of innovations in Ami Pro that were later adopted by other word processors. At the time that Ami Pro was introduced, the word processing market was dominated by WordPerfect. Both Ami Pro and Microsoft Word made inroads into WordPerfect's market share. Eventually Microsoft Word overtook WordPerfect as the dominant player and Ami Pro was discontinued. IBM, the present owner of the Lotus brand, renamed it Lotus Word Pro.
