    Evernote certainly does respect their users. Just because they don't do something you want them to do doesn't mean they are disrespecting you. A company is not a democracy. Those in charge have to make choices & they have chosen to not make a Linux client. And lastly, they are not dictating (or even trying to dictate) what OS you use.

    I I don't think it's entirely that simple. The open source community is just that - a community. EverNote undoubtedly uses various open source technologies, frameworks, tools, scripts and other resources. The way this all works is that everyone may use these tools freely, but it comes with an implicit responsibility to contribute back to the community in any way you can.  When people feel that this gentlemen's understanding is being violated, we must self police as a community - politely but firmly. The people who use Linux are a massive majority of the people who have contributed millions of man hours of work to the community, we feel that Evernote should act by way of a self imposed mandate to support the community that is the very foundation on which their software is built and the systems they use operate. It does make one feel a bit slighted...
