I've never heard of it, but it looks interesting.

A web search for "galaxy write" turns up your post as the first link. Do you have a link to a website about it/

I couldn't find a port but this may be of interest to you: " WORDGRINDER V0.5.2.1
====================

2007-2015 David Given
2015-01-18

Unix version


INTRODUCTION
============

WordGrinder is a simple, Unicode-aware word processor that runs on the
console. It's designed to get the hell out of your way and let you write;
it does very little, but what it does it does well.

It supports basic paragraph styles, basic character styles, basic screen
markup, a menu interface that means you don't have to remember complex
key sequences, HTML import and export, and some other useful features.

WordGrinder does not require X. It runs in a terminal."
It is supposed to be simple to install on Debian/Ubuntu systems.

Galaxy write and WordGrinder are completely different sofwares. The concept is totally different.

I much prefer Galaxy write. It was firstly made by a coder in Vienna who desired to replace light-weight and efficiently Word Perfect for Dos. He made a great soft!!!

Since I haven't used either of the software's I'll have to take your word that "The concept is totally different.", they both look like "cli/terminal word processing" utilities to me. That being said, it appears that your options are to port "Galaxy write" yourself or to use something similar to WordGrinder that works in Linux and is still being developed as of 2015. Good luck.
