Wine compatible.

Forget wine compatibility. I installed my scrivener on wine and it worked for quite some time, then suddenly for no reason that I could fathom it would save something that could't be read. Something in the WINE directory structure was not set up right. I looked for a solution and finally came across an "unofficial" linux version 1.9. This has some problems - I had to install aspel-dev to fix spelling and the toolbar buttons don't all work (the menu does however) all in all, the linux install is better even if it still needs work. I don't fully trust it so I make multitudinous copies.

Bean is the good one that i am personally using. online word editors on the other hand are also good to use. In online tools, i am using Zoho which is a great web-based application that i am using since the last few years. As i have two computers, i am using web-based on one while desktop based on the other.
