Dark Room is an amazingly simple yet effective text editor.
It has no fancy toolbars, but it gives you a wonderful platform for creative distraction-free text writing.
When you go into full-screen mode (F11), you're left with an empty screen and your text. No additional information, no taskbar to distract you, no multiple underlying windows from other applications. Such an approach makes it much easier for you to concentrate fully on what you're writing.
Here is how a typical session in Dark Room looks like:
– Windows XP / 2000 / 2003
– .NET Framework 2.0
Latest version: 0.7.5b (as of 13/09/2006)
