Mac Word Processors - Sort of Off Topic

I think it depends on what you want to use the word processor for, Daly.

I find I rarely use a word processor on my Mac—I don’t consider Scrivener a word processor, but a writing program.

If you intend to do a lot of writing in the word processor, then I think Nissus is a good choice. If you just need it for putting the finishing touches on documents you write in other programs, Pages—the word processor that is part of Apple’s iWorks suite—works well. Mellel is complicated, but powerful. If you think you are going to be doing a lot of work in the w.p., then Mellel might be worth checking out—otherwise skip it, since you’ll have to devote a lot of time to learning its techniques.

You may be able to get away with just using the free Bean, which has most of the basic word processing functions.
