MatrixFSE, formerly known as Gyounen, is a full screen editor for distraction free writing. It provides you with the basic features any editor has (load, save, copy, paste, cut). More than that it doesn’t do.Alternatives to tis program are darkroom and WriteRoom. Both of these applications are fullscreen editors. WriteRoom is for Mac only, Darkroom is for Windows only. As for Linux there is an alternative approach here You may want to have a look at those three products. Darkroom requires .NET 2.0 which is where my problems started....
