TextRoom is a Cross Platform Full Screen Rich Text Editor For Writers - working on Windows, Mac OS X, Ubuntu, Fedora and many other Linux distributions. There is a port for FreeBSD users, too.

What is TextRoom? TextRoom is a room of your own. Read the GPLv3

It is a free (as in freedom and free beer) full screen rich text editor developed with especially writers in mind.
TextRoom and all other similar editors share one goal: to get you writing right away by providing distraction free environment to your liking, as well as familiar set of keyboard shortcuts to control its behavior. If you don't feel comfortable already with your editor of choice, you may find it useful.

TextRoom works on Windows, Mac OS X, Ubuntu, Fedora and many other Linux distributions. There is a port for  FreeBSD users.
