Also, on the main review: comparing Scrivener to WriteRoom is like comparing the Shuttle to a paper airplane.

then I can copy the reference and paste it scrivener. Then I can compile a reference list in the reference software and copy it to scrivener. Then if add a reference, I need to go back to endnote create a new ref list and copy and paste it to scrivener. The only thing it seems to do is open my reference software. Wooptidoo... Or am I missing something?

Yes, you seem to be missing a lot. Scrivener is not Pages or Word. It does not try to be. Workable way to use Endnote detailed here:

I liked your review, it's pretty much on target. The writing community owes a lot to the efforts of Literature & Latte since the world is a little better place with Scrivener in it.

Posting to make one tiny correction: the 50% NaNoWriMo discount occurs when the participant "wins" NaNoWriMo by successfully producing 50,000 words within the 30-day timeframe. You're not given the discount simply for signing up and participating. It's more like a prize.
I "won" in 2010, and the discount meant I got Scrivener 2.0 for a mere $22.50. And the import/export functions work with everything EXCEPT Pages, which is made clear on L&L's website. L&L would love for it to work with Pages; unfortunately, as Pages is an Apple proprietary product, Apple isn't giving access to the code so they can make it work.
However, in light of the Scrivener/Apple link-up, this may change in the future.
Personally, I LOVE the software. To really understand the magnitude of the features, one must run through the entire tutorial. Only then will you see its true beauty.
