i found an pretty cool program the other day. it’s called JDarkRoom. it’s similar to WriteRoom, except it is free and multi-platform. the best part is that everything is saved in txt files. because the program is written in java, the application launches and runs without using much resources. also, because the program works directly with txt files, opening, writing to and closing files is at lightspeed. in the true WriteRoom sense, it is pure, distraction-free writing space.

you can download it here.
