  1. I think Evernote should reconsider its decision on a Linux client. First, Evernote has a really good reputation as just plain good people and a good company that I believe is quite deserved. So in keeping with that it seems certain they would like to have even more happy users. Some of us using Linux at least some of the time and would be even happier customers if there was a Linux client. Second, there are many in the community that have this need that would be delighted to write this client as open source or even as proprietary given just enough support or API access to do so. It would not have to cost Evernote much at all to have this client built. If it is open source, it would not even cost Evernote much to have it maintained. So in light of even better community positive response and incurring little extra cost and delighting many more users this seems to me a very clear win-win. So what is the thinking that would decide it otherwise? BTW, why doesn't someone actually from Evernote comment on this request?
  2. I am seeing three or more updates a week on my Mac. That is not innovation. That is poor product release planning and execution. At the least I would expect many of these to be doable behind the scenes without user involvement. I find it very annoying in an otherwise much loved product.
  3. Hmm. It sounds like the Evernote folks are basically saying "We like it this way and you can read the release notes to decide whether to do anything with the popup message about the update or not." Now this may be reasonable but it doesn't feel as if the question of whether there are updates a bit too often for user happiness is actually being addressed. Sometimes I personally feel that if a program is being updated too often (in my admittedly subjective view) that it may have more problems or less stability than I would like. The Firefox barrage of relatively recent times being a case in point. So it is probably worth the Evernote team giving some thought as to whether the update schedule/practices are optimal for their users and the product image. p.s. I LOVE this product.
