The onus would be on WINE developers to ensure compatibility, not L&L... in my experience, stuff working through WINE has always been a bit random :D
Best bet would probably be through virtualization

I have had my eye on Scrivener for some time. But never could afford a MAC. I'm looking forward to beta tesing it.

You just HAD to do this, didn't you? Here I had it all figured out: My MacBook is for writing, and the little netbook I got for my birthday two years ago is just for, well, netbook stuff. Oh, sure, I'm running Office 2003 on it, so I can do some editing of Word docs, but no WRITING! Not without Scrivener!(This, in spite of having downloaded trial or sale versions of most Windows writing programs. Which I'm still not really using. At all.)

So now you've invaded my tiny PC and I guess I'll be writing in coffee shops after all. Sigh . . . :wink:

Edited to add: Never mind my grousing; it will run on netbooks, won't it?

As long as your netbook runs XP, Vista, or w7, it should be able to run Scrivener just fine---especially if it can handle the monster that Office is.

So... I'm the only one that exports Scrivener files from the Mac to Google Docs, and download the RTF file to Word and finishes it up there?

:oops:

Well, if you put it that way, yes. I think you are the last person using Google Docs. ;)

KB - Thank you for your hard work on Scrivener over the years. I've been a happy user of the Mac version, and a reader of the forum, for something over a year now. I think Scrivener is a fantastic product, much more useful, in so many ways, than other writing programs on both Mac and Windows platforms, that I've used in the past. I'm really looking forward to 2.0.

I plan to stick to the Mac version for most of my writing, but it isn't hard to imagine how the Windows version will also benefit Mac users. Besides those of us who do sometimes, under duress, work on a Windows machine, Mac writers will be better able to share with non-Mac writers, for example writing group members or collaborators. With the planned file portability, including storing both Windows & Mac settings in each file, it looks like Mac users will be able to share templates, layouts, other examples--and in situations where it's appropriate, actual writing projects--with fellow writers, regardless of preferred platform.

A bigger user base, and the attendant cash flow, can hardly be a bad thing for future development and support.

I feel, at this time, tis incumbent upon my good self, to point out to X`s big guy, that access to the Internet, and by extension, Scrivener, is readily available to 99.99999+% of the planet`s population. Two of which are your progéniture. Daughditor&Boy :twisted:
Do take care

Oh, this is nice. I was wondering what to do with the Windows box that sits nearly unused on my desk. I think I must try this new version since it runs on XP. I may get some use out of the creaky ol' thing yet. Nicely done.
