    Word processor other that MS Word
    All,

    I'm looking for a basic word processor other than word, that would be between the capablities of Word and TextEdit.

    I've heard there's some good ones out there. Any one have a recomendation?

    It is my goal some day (and hopefully not before too long) to write my own word processing application that really gives word a run for its money, basically creating the wonder that is Word 5.1 :flower: A little way off though for you.

    Some excellent recommendations have been made, Mariner Write gets my heads up for something in between Word and TextEdit.
