CreaWriter, un OmmWriter para Windows by Cecilia on Bitelia.com

Me encanta ver programadores que en vez de quedarse con las ganas de que alguien más haga una aplicación, tomen las riendas y lo hagan ellos mismos. CreaWriter es una aplicación gratuita para Windows, que me encantaría ver seguir desarrollándose hasta su versión final.



Quiet Text Editor for Windows by James Furbush on slyoyster.com

I asked for it, out of shear jealousy, and now I shall receive. This is the Christmas season AFTER ALL, right? Anyway, Ommwriter, which was only available for Mac, has been ported to Windows and now it's called CreaWriter. (thanks Pepe)
