As a tool created for writers, Scrivener provides a nice range of features you won't find anywhere else from a compile to multiple formats which fixes everything from page formats to smart-quotes, to a scene-by-scene organization of your project to keywords and meta-words for tagging important persons, places, things, themes, etc. Overall, I recommend it to the writer over MSword or other general word processors but there is a long list of desirable features already available in the Mac version that are missing in the Windows version. For instance, you will find the corkboard almost useless once you have blocked your project into chapters, comments are rudimentary, and also missing are a range of secondary but important features like exporting your outline to excel (so you can summarize your data in ways that Scrivener does not support) or doc templates. Despite the flaws, it is a useful tool but prepare to be a bit frustrated.
