WordGrinder: Good, Old-Fashioned Text Editing Power

Filed under
Software

If you spend endless hours at a keyboard crunching words, avoiding distractions is essential. Sometimes, the worst offender in causing distractions comes from all the bells and whistles in the word processor itself. That is where WordGrinder comes to the rescue.

In today's Linux world of GUI-filled desktops, using a text editor that runs within a terminal window may seem like a big step backward. It did not take me very long to discover that writing with WordGrinder is actually a big step in a better direction.

WordGridner is simple to use but is still feature-sufficient. It avoids fancy tool buttons and sinuous menus. Instead, it packages one menu activated with the escape key.
