Scrivener for Windows Compared to Scrivener for the Mac
See this review by David Hewson. Be sure to look at the comments too. I bought Scrivener for the Mac some time ago and have "fooled" with it, but it has not, for me, turned out to be a compelling alternative to ConnectedText. Hewson claims: "The Windows app looks a bit old-fashioned to me, especially when you set it against Microsoft’s new, minimalist version of Word." That leaves me flabbergasted. I have used Word since version 2. All kinds of words come to mind for this version. "Minimalist" is not one of them. And this is not just because of the abominable "ribbon." 1.
