With the advent of Wordfast Professional, Wordfast's traditional Word-based product has acquired the name "Wordfast Classic". Plans are for development of Wordfast Classic to continue, i.e. it is not expected to be replaced by Wordfast Professional.

Several translation memory applications for the Windows platform can be run on Linux using Crossover Linux. Among them, however, Wordfast Classic is unique in having built up a group of dedicated users.

Whilst not entirely without problems, the Wordfast Classic+Microsoft Word+Crossover Linux combination runs sufficiently well on Linux to be worth the effort. Users can find others using this combination in the general Wordfast Yahoo forum.
