Hugh, I think you have this all exactly right. As a Windows-only user, I remember waiting years for WinScriv, and I am extremely grateful for it! Almost none of the other wonderful-sounding Mac tools lauded by folks on this forum have even *considered* porting to Windows. So, again, I am extremely grateful to the L&L team. For this alone they should be cut a *lot* of slack by Win users. I have total respect, too, for the fact that they have put their loyal Mac user base first even as they have rolled out the Win version. And I am incredibly excited for the coming v3 for Windows!
