A dream to no Apple users ...
Deciding to be Mac-based only; while this may be the company's idea of an advantage, I strongly disagree.
While I must say that OmniFocus looks quite impressive - but with so many great tools out there in the competition with multiple OS and device integration, this makes it a very easy decision to NOT choose OmniFocus. Even if I decided to be exclusively Mac-based with my company, the number of clients out there using Windows or other platforms... not feasible.
After speaking with OmniFocus and finding out they have no plans for pursuing cross-platform solutions - I have no plans of pursuing to try to make OmniFocus part of my work environment wither; there are so many other great alternatives now.

According to AlternativeTo, OmniFocus supports Online –– meaning that you can access it on Windows via a web browser.
I used OmniFocus in its early days and Kinkless kGTD for OmniOutliner before that. I also used other OmniFocus apps like OmniWeb. I like the long history of The Omni Group developing for NEXTSTEP and macOS. But I would prefer a task list app with less buttons to fiddle with.
Wirecutter writes the following about OmniFocus in their guide "The Best To-Do List App:"
I would have bought the full version years ago if only it were cross platform!
I completely agree johnclark! What a shame.
I agree! Contrary to other comments I have not found an application with as much power and flexibility to use on a Windows 10 PC. So I agree - this is a real shame.
More of a professional solution than Things. More versatile & better support for the way I want to work.
Good OS integration & scripting ability.
OmniGroup make excellent apps!
