He wants them to get it done in no time at all. He simply doesn’t understand what it takes to create a functioning application.
What he misses is that this gives him an external excuse to procrastinate, which is exactly what he is doing in here.

Sorry, but I'm comparing Mac's fully functional, stable version 3.1.2 to Win's fully functional, stable version 1.9.9. Still want to say it's only months behind? The beta doesn't count

And, once again, you miss the point that Windows users are making. Scrivener is available for Windows, but it is years behind the Mac version in features and continuing to fall even further behind. L&L has been promising parity since day one (2011, in case you don't know). But it never happens. We are not whining about the lack of the product in our sphere; we are expressing frustration at the endless delays to the long-promised parity. Delays that are always shrugged off and accompanied by suggestions that we just be quiet and wait another year.
The December blog post offered Windows users another empty promise. While there are still about 80 days left in Q2, the possibility that Win 3 will be released within that timeframe is remote, if the Beta forum threads are anything to go by. Not holding my breath for a Q2 release or, indeed, for a 2019 release. But I just may start looking into those Windows competitors JimRac mentioned.

They have been far and beyond more open with the process than most other companies are while also trying to be honest about needing to manage expectations. I just want to make sure we’re clear here that when you say windows users as a generalization you understand that you are not speaking for all of us.
There are many of us who understand this process and appreciate what goes into it. Does Scrivener make my writing more efficient? Yes. Does it prevent me from writing? Absolutely not. It’s a means to an end and one that I appreciate greatly every day, even as it catches up.

.. I think what you mean is you prefer Win, just as many prefer Mac. I have machines running Win 7, 10 and Mac and will say I prefer Mac. It suits me better, but apart from the lower tco of Mac (per IBM) and my preference for the stability and ease of use of Mac OS, I wouldn’t go as far as claiming ‘better in every way’.my win because they are better in-every-way
