Just learned about it and the website is down.
I see the owner is still active on Facebook but no update to the software.
There’s no way to get on the forum because the supervisor never send any approval emails.

SO, any good alternative on Windows?

That’s too bad. On Windows you’re best to look at Tiddlywiki 5 or a locally hosted Dokuwiki. You have to install a variety of extensions/plugins on each to get close to ConnectedText’s bundle of features, but both are very flexible. Tiddlywiki is actually pretty darn good but it suffers from the problem that its community of users is very technical so scholarly users may feel a bit lost for a while.

The website is up.  The forum is available.  There’s nothing posted on the site about going out of business.  The software works.

The software works right now, but (and someone please correct me if I am wrong) as I understand, it relies on a lot of outdated/deprecated components, so that could very well change in the future without an update. One of the top threads on the forum right now is still about how it doesn’t work properly on high resolution displays.

It’s not unreasonable to ask these questions before paying money for a piece of software.

Unless you have confirmation that Connected Text is “dead”, your post is irresponsible and you should consider removing it. Websites do go down every so often. The Connected Text site is *not* down.
