Hi Stephen.

I cannot tell you which is THE BEST word processor/outliner/PIM. I can only tell you what I use:

My writing tools:
- Scrivener for writing
- NeoOffice for exchanging files with my customers and publishers (and off course for calculations and presentations)

My outlining tools:
- Xmind for brainstorming and creating the first sketches of an outline
- Scrivener for expanding and modifying the outline while writing

My PIM tools:
- iCal, Mail and Address Book in combination with
- Taskpaper (though I am also just looking at Things)

You surely know you can use Parallels or VMware to install Windows and Zoot on your Mac. Dragging notes or text snippets from Zoot to a Mac application (or the other way round) works. I think there was a thread on using Zoot on the Mac on the Zoot mailing list.
