about Nisus Writer Jun 2011

I've used NisusWriter Express since at least 2004. It's big enough for my word processing requirements, and seems to handle conversion from most formats quite happily. The keyboard shortcuts are completely customisable, and there are tons of features. There's also a Pro version of this word processer, for the heavy duty writers out there.
