Whilst everyone and their uncle gets excited by the sheer green-screen retro simplicity of WriteRoom, personally I really like the look of Scrivener (which can do the green-screen thing too, funnily enough). It’s a nifty-looking text processing application: the corkboard metaphor for notes and ideas really appeals to the way I write. I currently have random snippets of text here, there and everywhere—on Kinky (my “Blackbook”) and Stinky (my IBM Thinkpad). Certainly worth checking-out I think:
