A great little word processor!

I would like to share the greatest little word processor with you. I use it for writing. The download is under 4MB and there is a free trial period. It is called Atlantis. You can take a look at it through the following atlantiswordprocessor dot com. It does so much I never use, but it is fast. It opens and saves in several formats including MS Word. You can even change the background color on the pages ruler. It has several sound modes. One of them makes your laptop sound just like a typewriter, what fun! You can enable or disable the sounds. It installs well to a flash drive. It comes setup to save in rtf automatically, but you can change that. It is great for just writing and takes little memory or space. It will operate from Windows 95b all the way up to Vista. It works great on a very old laptop I have. A 125mhz, 60ram, 5mb hdd, etc. The point is that it is a great little program, especially for writers. Another one that when installed looks like a file cabinet with file folders that you set us is called yeahwrite dot com. Just a heads up in case you have never heard of these. I am not sure about posting urls so you can enter atlantis or yeah write in google and get the info. Thanks.

Nifty little Mac writing app

I've been using Nisus Writer Pro for a couple of years and really like it. It's not free -- $80 -- but for me it's been worth the money. It makes use of Mac's built-in managers for fonts, colors, special characters, etc. Good tech support too.

They also have a lite version ($45) that leaves out the heavy-duty features like comments, TOC generation, etc. They're nice, simple, rugged little apps.

My personal favorite

It's my favorite too. Although I've been using Nisus Writer Express (actually, Nisus Writer "classic" since version 4.5) since the beginning. Love it.

However, in the interest of fairness, there are other fine word processors, such as Mellel and Mariner Write. Bean is free, and only a couple minor steps above TextEdit. In fact, TextEdit--the free, Apple-provided text editor, makes a credible light word processor. I would postulate, that all fo these are better than just about any program available on Windows. :-)

But they're 'payware'

Still free: http://openoffice.org-suite.com/

Don't forget....

Abiword! It's also free, and a much lighter word processor (only). It has some weird font problems on the Mac, but looks fine under Linux, and, I presume, Windows (which never looks fine).

Um why not ...

I wonder why you mention

http://openoffice.org-suite.com/

when all versions of Openoffice.org are available direct from the pukka website www.openoffice.org.

Versions for Linux, Mac OS X and Windows are available there.

If you try to download, you will not have to wonder...

Yea, but....

I doubt Lex did that on purpose. He's been around a while... I do remember once somehow looking for OOo and finding this "suite" site instead. Unfortunately, I don't remember where or how I came across it. It wasn't from Google, I know that. Maybe another search engine, or softpedia or something...

-Jon

Agreed

I doubt Lex meant anything nasty.

Hey, Lex !! May I change the link ?

Email notifications anyone?

Here's another vote for email notifications of posts. Feel free to change the link Ygor. I was pointing, I thought, to the free Open Office apps. How's this: http://download.openoffice.org/index.html

Much better. Thanks

I was confident that you meant no harm, but that was a nasty site.

?

Readers are going to assume it was porn or something. It was just payware masquerading as the free Open Office apps. (blush)

But on this forum

a porn link would be one to the Levenger site ;-)
