I don’t wish to start a religious war, and I mean this question in all sincerity: why are so many top-flight outliners and other types of writing software written exclusively for Mac, and never (with the notable exception of Scrivener) re-coded for Windows? Given that there are so many more Windows users than Mac users, I’d think it would make economic sense to code for Windows, or at least code first for Windows and then deal with Mac later. Admittedly, I don’t know whether coding for Mac is easier than coding for Windows. I’d love to get some insight!
