Ommwriter, the Quiet Text Editor

A beta version is available for the Mac, so sadly I won’t be able to try this out.  Truthfully, aside from this blog, I can’t remember when I actually used a text editor outside of the occasional Google Doc.  It would be nice, however, to have something streamlined, like Ommwriter, to have a relaxing environment that hearkens back to the typewriters of yore.  A space to just write.  “With multiple windows and applications all vying for our attention, we have sadly adapted our working habits to that of the computer and not the other way around. Ommwriter is a humble attempt to recapture what technology has snatched away from us today: our capacity to concentrate.”

Well, you certainly have my attention.  I would do just about anything to do away with Microsoft Office for good.
