Do any of you use writing freeware?  Any thoughts, negatives, comparisons?   I've run though a few, but keep returning to standard Open Office.

When i had a windows computer I used and loved Q10. In fact it is the only piece of software I wish was available for Mac. I use scrivener (not freeware) now and like it but I miss Q10.

I use ywriter 4 as well as another program that is not free (but got it for $10). I love ywriter, has everything I need and is rather easy to use. I no longer write in word or open office.

I have always used Word; never thought of using any other specific writing programs.  But now I'm thinking of giving it a bash. :)
