Personally I actually think this kind of complaining is a bit childish. If Scrivener 3 is so important for you, there is a simple solution. Buy a Mac! If running Windows is more important than running Scrivener 3, stay with Windows and Scrivener 1.9!
I'm not the topic starter. And you've missed my point entirely. Not to mention that not having a version for an OS at all and having an inferior version for an OS are two quite different things.
Also. To buy a Mac I need to stop eating for about three months. Kindly get out of your first world bubble from time to time, will you.

I think you've mixed me up with somebody else.
I was talking about managing customers' expectations, which, frankly, L&L is doing a so-so job of. That's all. Communication to the customers is important. See another user's post below. They're speaking about being frustrated at empty promises. This is customer communication and managing expectations. How come L&L doesn't see it? Talk to people, give them something other than "one day we will release it".
I was not talking about refusing Windows beta. Simply because I'm on Linux 3/4 of time.

The thing is, and of course this is complete speculation on my part, I suspect L&L is just about as big as Keith wants it to be, although I could see them trying to hire an iOS developer, to allow Keith to focus on Mac. But finding the right person is not a trivial undertaking.
Nobody promised it will be an easy feat. But you see, if the project is growing, if they want to cover more platforms, if the bar keeps being raised, then hiring more professionals is inevitable. Otherwise a bottleneck is created. Two good devs will be better than one. Three good devs will be better than two.

I've found a couple of apps that look promising, I will try them out this November. Although I do realise that switching to a new software before NaNo is a bit of a crazy move.
But then, NaNo itself is a crazy idea, isn't.
Anyway, I'm really thankful for Scrivener. It has changed the way I write, and it has been a great experience. Hope everything works out in the best way possible.
Hope to return to it some day in future, when more OS are supported.
