I completely agree about Selective Sync. Since the monthly quota for paid accounts is now 1 GB, my Evernote database is getting unwieldy. In addition to the large size, there's significant performance degradation, especially when starting Evernote (Mac and Windows). I have a number of notebooks I don't need on every computer but I do want to access via the Web interface. For example, on my Macbook Pro, I use Boot Camp and use both the Mac and Windows clients. I don't need every notebook in both locations, but at the same time, a local notebook is the exact opposite of what I need. I had a similar situation with Dropbox until they implemented selective sync. I would have 1 paid account an 1 free account and then "share" the folders I needed from the paid account to the free. It was a PITA, but it worked in the short run. I don't think I can set up a similar setup with Evernote and have a decent experience.
