Bean looks like a pretty spiffy open source word processor for Mac OS X –
Bean is lean, fast, and uncluttered. If you get depressed at the thought of firing up MS Word or OpenOffice, try Bean. If you use Text Edit but have to jump through hoops just to get a word count or change the margins, try Bean. If you desire a simple, low-pressure writing environment, try Bean. Bean doesn’t do footnotes, customized headers and footers, columns, pre-defined text styles, floating graphics (but it does do in-line graphics).
