Small and does what it needs to as a distraction-free editor, without being a hipster electron piece of trash. I haven't gotten the sound to work properly, but I don't need it to make sound, just be a fullscreen text editor. I use a monospace font and amber text color to emulate an old Brother Word Processor I used in the early nineties, takes me back to that creative place. It's discontinued but bug-free and unlikely to be a security risk. Focuswriter is the modern and feature+ successor.

I've tried a lot of distraction-free word processors, though my real criteria was minimal. Q10 is the most pure, minimal distraction free software I have encountered.

It takes up very little memory and offers complete customisation of colours allowing for users to create a dark or bright theme.

Despite being discontinued, text will always be text and I wish to use it forever.

I used to use WriteMonkey, but it wouldn't render all font formats.
Switched to Q10 for this very reason.
