  1. Evernote isn't interested in a Linux version, so don't hold your breath for a native Linux version. Part of the problem is that there is no competition in the Linux market. If Microsoft announced an official Linux version of OneNote you'd be sure to see an about-face and Evernote would at least take Linux under consideration. And there are no note applications for Linux that has any draw upon Windows and Mac users. Best bet may be if Google came in with a note-taking application (other than Docs) because you know that it would work in the web, which means it would work for all pl
  2. Funny thing is that this round-and-round is also self-perpetuating. Evernote does not see enough people using Linux being interested in using Evernote, let alone pay for their product so they don't want to spend the resources to develop for that platform. /\ || \/ Linux users doesn't see Evernote being friendly to their platform and so the vast majority will simply stay away and find other solutions (life's too short) and who is going to pay for something that doesn't work on their systems? We can argue back-and-forth until our faces are blue. Linux isn't goi
  3. Finally some good (and solid) news! Look forward to the public beta to give it a try.
  4. Something Evernote may wish to look at is the poll on opensource.com that has Evernote with the largest percentage of votes (37%). This Linux and Open Source orientated site should give a fair snapshot and you can see the results of the poll in What's your go-to note-taking app? Now for those using Linux that are ready to bail, you may want to look at the opensource.com article 4 desktop note-taking applications for getting stuff done and 4 open source alternatives to Evernote and see if any of these will better suit you.
  5. Yeah, just ask Google (Google Drive for Linux, promised 6+ years ago and still to deliver)... If Evernote does not want to support Linux, then that's all there is to it. Darwinism will work its way. As-is, for Linux I find little difference between Evernote (web) and Microsoft OneNote (web). I did use Evernote for a while but now am using OneNote more and more. When somebody comes up with a cross-platform product that supports Linux and has a web client then I will probably go with that. I think ownCloud/Nextcloud is working on one and if it accomplishes a product that is pol
  6. There is an article about NixNote 2 Beta 5 coming out which is supposed to work with Evernote. http://www.webupd8.org/2015/11/evernote-linux-client-nixnote-2-beta-5.html These are never as good as an official version for Linux (like Google changing their Drive API so that the solutions no longer work until they are updated), but it at least helps. I'll probably give it a try this week, but am not expecting too much out of it yet.
  7. If Linux is forced to use Evernote over the web, then it provides little to no difference than using OneNote from Microsoft.
  8. It would be great to be able to use Evernote in Linux (being a Linux user for the past 12 years, I would love it, but I am not holding my breath). Unfortunately the trend is not in favor for making Linux clients for a number of reasons smaller market share (compared to Windows) requirement to port or adjust coding for the *nix environment (OS X is BSD-based which is similar, but different), this includes different desktop environments (KDE, Unity, Gnome/Xfce/Lxde, etc.) packaging for the different distributions (.rpm, .deb, etc.) and different distributions file layout To make it wor
