What is a dx file and how do I open a dx file?

The DX file extension is used for a text file implemented by a DOS Processing program called DEC WPS. A DX file is considered only as plain text and usually contains document data. DOS is an acronym for Disk Operating System used by different operating systems from the year 1991 to 2000. Examples of these operating systems are MS-DOS, PC-DOS and 86-DOS. The origin of DOS begun with Digital Research’s CP/M (Control Program/Monitor), the main disk operating system for Zilog Z80 and Intel 8080 microcomputers. The introduction of IBM PC needed an operating system that is compatible with 8088-build of CP/M. IBM turned to Digital Research and Microsoft CEO Bill Gates for a possible negotiation of its CP/M requirement for an operating system. This negotiation did not prosper which later on lead to IBM having its own operating system named PC-DOS and Microsoft releasing its own version of an operating system called MS-DOS.
