Scrivener is the winner in my personal 5 day authoring software comparative test. I will buy it as soon as I start to feel taken seriously as a windows user. "Apple eye-candy computing" is not for everyone!

The total development costs for the Mac version came to a grand total of zero - it started out as my hobby, so the only cost was my time. By contrast, in order to port to Windows, we have put thousands and thousands of dollars into Windows development - both from Literature & Latte's funds and Lee's personal funds. Lee gave up a high-profile job and sold his beloved Mini Cooper to throw himself into this project, and has spent the last two years or so living and breathing Scrivener in an attempt to cover as much as possible of the seven years' worth of code that has gone into the Mac version. As others have pointed out, Lee has already added to 1.x features that we said were going to be part of a paid 2.x update next year. We all absolutely understand Windows users' desires to have all the features the Mac version has, and are working hard to make that a reality. But Lee's task can sometimes seem Sisyphean, because the Mac version is not standing still, either.
All the best,

I'm primarily a screenwriter on Final Draft 8, and the last update-- which gave me the import/export into FD8--- was the one feature I was anxiously waiting for.
This latest beta gave me the icing on the cake--import and split, and printing index cards and outline
Anyone that mewls about Win Scrivener should test out all the other Scrivener-wannabes, and they will see just how freakin' amazing Scrivener truly is. I tried many of them, and they do not even come close. The main competitor only allows one image per character (at least when I tested it) The esthetics and ease of use are not anything to brag about, and screenwriting issues are not even a consideration for any of the programs.
