Anyone have these historical software?.. maybe to show screenshots for everyone to see what they look like (and expect a PM too)?

Yes! Here:

http://www.typewritten.org/Media/

Unfortunatelly the person/group behind the website doesn't even answer electronic mail. It seems it's some kind of private collection. (?)

As I remember you need license keys for these three applications. So even if you get them, they're not really useful w/o lic keys.

The typewritten.org site is run by R. Stricklin, who was on Nekochan as "bear". He's also on some of the other forums and mailing lists that deal with vintage computers. The site does document his personal/private collection. He's pretty helpful with advice and suggestions for hardware repair and troubleshooting. He used to (probably still does) make it clear on his website that his media collection is not for sale or trade and that such requests would be ignored.

Even then he doesn't answer on any mail. So of no help, at least for me.
