One thought on “Simple, distraction-free writing environment

  1. FAIL.
    By comparing it to MS Word, you imply that this program is a standin for it. But it’s not. It only supports TXT, basic RTF, and basic ODT. Unless you are a power user or geek, you probably store your MS files in doc or docx format, which this program can’t handle.
