(Archived) Ideas to get Evernote onto Linux

Recommended Posts

There has probably been a lot of threads on this. Yes, people want an Evernote desktop client on Linux, myself included. The Evernote devs have got their hands full with stuff though. But rather than complaining about it, I want to do something about it. And I've got a few ideas that might make it easier to port the Evernote client for Linux.

Idea #1: Use a Wine wrapper to get the Windows version of Evernote onto Linux

No, this isn't using Wine directly. I notice that Google Picasa did this. They used a compatibility layer (probably something like Wine) to get Picasa working on Linux. I suggest that Evernote does this too.

Idea #2: Work with Crossover/Wine to get the Windows version working in Linux

OK, so it isn't a native Linux client. But surely, the Evernote devs could go up to Wine/Crossover and help them to get Evernote up to a Platinum rating on Wine/Gold Rating in Crossover i.e. working flawlessly in both Wine and Crossover.

Any other ideas to get Evernote working on Linux flawlessly
