Minimalistic Word Processing

If you think that your current word processing application is too bloated, too feature-laden, too distracting from the actual task of creating text, why not try some alternatives:

Mac users might be interested in Scrivener or WriteRoom; there is also a Windows equivalent named DarkRoom, described here, and of course a Java version named JDarkRoom.

If you look for a web-based application, try Writer.

What these programs have in common, is full-screen non-WYSIWYG monochrome green-on-black text editing.

No colors, no sounds, no animations, no distractions.

And it looks great.
