Acta is the text editor used for early BMUG newsletters in 1988.

tanaquil kindly uploaded ActaClassic capable of opening the Acta2 files on BMUG CDs together with some other helper apps:

Acta Reader does indeed deserve a page of its own.
There are five years between the apps, its always a good idea to separate things of that different age methinks.

A collection of shareware nag screens sounds like a plan, go ahead if you have some items in mind.

I started to edit my comment to add more details about Acta Reader, but then I decided it deserved a page of its own.

Check out the shareware nag for Acta Reader. I wonder if anyone has ever made a collection of clever/funny About boxes and shareware nag screens.

Thanks for the upload! As I noted in another thread, Acta Reader (included on the various early BMUG disks, I checked - I didn't realize it was there until after I had uploaded Acta Classic) is another option for reading the BMUG outlines, and perhaps even a better one.
