    I've always felt that the style began with IA Writer, right around the time OS X introduced full-screen apps. IA writer already had a very minimal writing aesthetic, but when used in full-screen mode you were writing with nothing on the screen at all but text, which turned out to be a really impressive experience. It seemed to me to all evolve from that. Very curious to hear everyone else's answers though.
