the ability to have multiple documents open in tabs is superb. Also the word target and word count features are great!

I've tried every program like this and FocusWriter is the best

I've been pushing this program for quite a while now on blogs like Lifehacker. You can customize it so much and it just works. It sucks for the people that have made similar programs and have tried to make a little money. Try this program if you want distraction-free writing.

Yboris is right. This is definitely one of the best...if not the best. The only fault (if it is one) is that like the other minimalist word processors you can't change the font size. This isn't too much of a problem considering you can always italicize/indent. You can change the main font size (for better viewing) to whatever size you like. If you're a writer - try this one! For storyboarding and other more technical aspects of writing try yWriter5!

Scrivener is coming out soon for the PC and yWriter is probably going to be left in the dust.

The best of the full-screen genre because: very customizable and still unobtrusive, but unlike others allows to Center / Justify / Bold / Italicize text and has a scroll bar that appears on mouse-over. Unlike others it has on-mouse-over menu and even tabs for multiple documents! Nothing can be better :)
