I noticed that there is a trend for distraction-free writing software. There are lots of software calling themselves aimed at distraction-free writing, with very few features. This lack of features is considered a feature itself. Features would distract writers and make them lose focus. So, these software are supposedly better because they would allow writers to keep focus on what really matters (writing) without being distracted by features. The list of software is long, here are a few: • iA Writer • iA Writer Pro • OmmWriter • WriteRoom • CleanWriter • Byword • Write • Focus Writer • Grandview • JDarkRoom The list is long and is growing. Meanwhile, there are just a few word processors that have a full set of features. We have Microsoft Word; Apple Pages (not really as it lacks features); Mellel; Nisus Writer Pro; and LibreOffice/OpenOffice Writer. It seems to me that developers have released lots of distraction-free writing tools recently because these apps are easier to develop and do not take too much time or effort, more than because they really believe these apps are better tools for writing. I have seen no new full-featured word processor lately and it's disappointing. Does anybody feel like me? That these distraction-free word processors may be useful for some but really nonsense for lots of people? I don't get distracted by the features of my word processor. There are lots of things to distract me – mainly the web – and it's not the lack of features that will help me. On the other hand: those features are useful and help me get my text written.
