The easiest way I know of to go from Markdown to RTF/Word is with WriteMonkey, http://writemonkey.com/. Just use Ctrl-Shift F and paste into Word or an RTF editor.

Personally, I am very reluctant to commit my work to any cloud-exclusive app. There is too much history of abandonment. Nevertheless, I am impressed by the concept of Ginko, and wish the developers good luck with it.

Not bad. Lately, as I move from device to device, it seems to be more important to get to a file. That’s Evernote’s great strength. Gingko was kind of fun and interesting on a PC browser. But when I tried it on the iPad, I found that I could create and edit cards, but couldn’t effect any structural changes. And on my Android phone, I couldn’t display anything but the first column. So that makes me think it won’t move into a regular tool for me.

@ Steve Z & jaslar

Those things are important to me as well. However, from reading the Hacker News discussion, my sense is that this is a brand new service that is currently being developed by two guys, so all the bells and whistles are not in place yet. However, they seem to be making the right noises about the additional services they are planning to add (infinite levels, off-line access, local copies, OPML export etc.).
