In the event your computer crashes - you need to have the CD. If you order the download, you can copy it onto a CD right away and you get it as soon as you pay for it. If you purchase the CD version, you'll won't have to take the time to copy it, but you will have to wait for it. So the only thing to ask yourself now is - How long do I want to wait to play?

I am a scrapbooker and I have scal and I just recently purchased Make the Cut.... Seriously I would recommend you get MTC it is so much easier to use.

That's what I'm afraid of, that one is easier than the other. I did not want to start a controversy or anything but I have seen some videos of them both and I guess because I'm a hands on type of learner, both programs look almost the same to me. Does anyone have a preference and why?

do you ladies know if you can purchase the program elsewhere or it has to be online I really want to play with my cricut lol !!!!

I tryed both demos and although both are user friendly I just preferred MTC. I downloaded the full version of MTC and ordered the cd so I can use it now but I will get a back up cd in a few days, just in case.

If that helps, I just upgraded to SCAL2 and bought MTC this week and working on a comparison of the two. Hoping to post this weekend.

They both do the same things, you just have to go with whatever you feel more comfortable with.

Here are my pros for SCAL

- alot more people have it , so its easier to share scuts.
- there alot of videos and tutorials on how to use SCAL on youtube.
- their forum is filled with information, ideas, scuts and files.

I havent tried MTC but I'm happy with SCAL so I'm not interested in buying another software that does the same thing.

I got the D/L version, I didnt wanna wait for a CD and I didnt want to pay $15 extra for it.

Heres a comparison chart on both programs I got from CleverSomeday

Get both trial offers and see which one suits you
