I need a scalpel, not a swiss knife

Kevin Lipe on forkbombr.net:

Word processors, around 1993 or so, started getting crappy, and they haven’t really started getting better—not for long-form writing. Writing a novel in a word processor now is filled with fiddling—getting the font right, getting the header right, getting everything in manuscript format, getting everything just so so you feel comfortable enough to worry about the writing and not the computer. They started trying to help—and helping a writer while he or she is writing is impossible.

For me, Scrivener does it. But I don’t think I will upgrade to 2.0. Too many features.
