Thanks. Perhaps it’s worth adding that this is at a 10% discount until 7th Nov. Also, there is an additional educational discount for those that qualify. I’ve been beta-testing it and I’ve been very pleased to have finally access to this software (not having a Mac).

“I?ve been very pleased to have finally access to this software (not having a Mac).”

As we all know, the Win version is more or less the Mac version of 3 or more years ago, this fact making “access to this software” just slightly unspecific. If you’re willing to pay the Mac price or more for a version no Mac user would touch anymore, fine, but I wouldn’t spend a dime on such a deal.

And then, the most beautiful software of its kind isn’t Scrivener but Storyist (for Mac only, how could it be otherwise).

This isn’t entirely true. The Windows version includes some features of the current Mac version—including collections, which is a potentially powerful feature. Scrivener for Windows immediately becomes one of the best options for writing and managing writing projects for PCs and at $36 is a bargain.

Storyist is a nice application, but it is much more locked in to novel and fiction writing. The beauty of Scrivener is that you can easily adapt it to almost any type of writing, including business writing. This is true of the Windows version as well as the Mac version.

Fredy, as I said, I do not own a Mac, so how else could I have access to Scriveners than the new Windows version? As a Windows user I’m pretty happy even with a 3-year old version of Scrivener, as it’s better than nothing. So this announcement was for Windows users.
