Scrivener for Linux, end of the run

Leave a comment

scrivener-300x253So, the good news is there is a new version of Scrivener for Linux – version 1.9.1 – and it is an unlimited edition, meaning it will never expire.

The bad news is, this is the last Scrivener for Linux that we are going to get – and that’s the reason why this is an unlimited software.

In the future, should Linux users decide to update their Scrivener, they will have to purchase a Windows version, and run it on WINE or some other emulator.

Considering that the Scrivener for Linux has been so far run for free and as an act of kindness to the community, we have been very lucky so far.
Running the next Scrivener in WINE, paying the forty bucks for the license, will not be a great sacrifice.

As of now, the Linux 1.9.1 version of the software can be downloaded from this link, in various formats and for both 32 and 64 bits systems. It works like a wonder.
