Focuswriter on the Eee

A couple of days ago I wrote about FocusWriter, a distraction free writing tool for a range of platforms. At the time I hadn't used it in  anger, but true to my word I installed it on my revived EEEpc 701 SD.

Installation was trivial - a minute or two at most, and in use the application was efficient and responsive, giving just the write amount of control to write fluently. I was sufficiently enthused to use it to knock out the first draft of a book review, some thing I'd normally do using AbiWord or ReText.

The writing experience was pretty good, and pretty fluid - I'm actually quietly impressed by FocusWriter and will certainly be using it alongside of my trinity of preferred Markdown writing tools
