WriteRoom shifts focus to writing

updated 11:00 am EDT, Thu July 13, 2006

WriteRoom 1.0 released

Hog Bay Software today released WriteRoom 1.0, a new word processing application designed to strip away all "unnecessary" and "distracting" formatting tools. WriteRoom allows users to customize the writing layout as well as the text color, supporting the concept of focusing on writing rather than tool palettes surrounding text. Source code is available to registered users of WriteRoom, and the software currently offers more than twenty-five user-created plug-ins. WriteRoom 1.0 requires Mac OS X 10.4 or later, and runs natively on Intel-based Macs as a Universal Binary.

    Simply Wonderful

    Simply put, WriteRoom is wonderful. For those running Windows, that would like to experience the benefits of WriteRoom, could give DarkRoom, which requires Microsoft's .Net framework, or JDark Room, which is Java based and does not require .Net framework, a try.
