    A couple of corrections of MacKeeperUser's list:

    Word processors:

    Nisus Writer Pro (excellent, powerful program, and handles many languages)

    Since the release of OpenOffice 3.0, it does not require X11. And Office 3.3 beta is the best so far of any release.
    Mellel 3, NWP 2, Scrivener 2.3.1, Tinderbox 5.11.2
    LibreOffice 3.6, Accordance 10.0, Adobe CS4, DTP 2.4.3
    OS X 10.8.2
