On Friday I linked to a little app for OS X called WriteRoom
, which is a minimalist word processor for writers. A few of the commenters didn't quite "get" it (sorry, folks, but maximizing Word and changing the colors isn't remotely equivalent to a distraction-free writing environment*), but a lot of writers certainly do, including one developer who missed it so much when he had to use Windows that he just built a Windows version. Dark Room
is a WriteRoom clone for Windows that's just as minimal and just as free.
*Though one commenter suggested installing Word 5.5 for DOS
, which is closer.
