Personally, I think I'm going to buy a MacBook for the pure reason to buy scrivener until it's released for Windows.

I know, I know...but I've got s__t to do and I enjoy writing in this program more than the others.

Scrivener for Windows is currently Beta software. This means a couple of things including the fact that no one should use it for critical work as there’s the distinct possibility there’ll be bugs that affect your work.

It also means that you shouldn’t use it if it would cause you problems if there was a delay between one beta running out and being able to get hold of the next one (either because it was delayed or you didn't have net access).

Like I said, possibly hard to hear but that’s the reality of using beta software - you can't (and shouldn't) rely on it.

All very good advice. I'm not yet using it for anything critical, as I've played the beta game before, but it's good to point all that out for others who may not have done beta-testing.

I'm not so worried about losing work, I'm just greedy - I want to keep using it :) I can happily work away in other programs, but if I have a choice, I'd definitely like to continue using and testing it alongside them, until such time as I can move properly.

Ooh... wish I could do the same. I think the new Macbook Airs were made for Scrivener.

In short--you can have Scrivener installed on both your desktop and laptop with no problems. :)

I can't tell you how relieved I am to hear that! I have a huge desktop with dual monitors, which is my computer of choice, but obviously, it doesn't travel well :) My second choice is an old laptop, but it's really heavy, so if I'm going somewhere where portability is an issue, I use my netbook. I was wondering how I was going to deal with the computer issue.
