  1. Bear note taking app, $1.49 monthly or 14.99 yearly. It's only mac right now, but it's cleaner.
  2. Successful businesses evolve, Microsoft is a huge Linux contributor now, they have sql server for linux. They are a successful business. Dropbox has clients for Windows, Mac and linux, they continue to grow. Evernote from a valuation perspective is a shadow of what it was at its height. Their web client has always been sub-par to the point of unusable. I updated EULA is the nail in the coffin IMO.
  3. More of a general statement, but the new EULA allowing employees to read your notes. As far as your "linux Business" statement, Evernote was a tech company that tried to sell schoolbags, was it in the "school bag business"? I would think a linux client is more closely aligned with their "Core" business than school bags and desk grabage...
  4. Looks like evernote's trying to do whatever it can to put itself out of business.
  5. Disdain? you've missed the point completely. From the beginning most of the posters here wanted nothing more than to use the best quality app for note taking on linux. The moderators/gurus of the board have repeatedly expressed the fact that Evernote has no plans to build an evernote client. Most of the the posts have been extremely dismissive and quite frankly obnoxious to those trying to drum up support for their cause. It's been pointed out that it's just not in their strategy... WE, the linux advocates feel Evernote lost it's way and choose to share an opinion. It's been pointed out that Linux will NEVER be in their strategy (Which is weird unless you are an employee, board member or making things up). So what's their strategy, making gray and green backpacks or desk chotckies? Crappy food apps that take pictures of your food? The article references a tumultuous year for Evernote. I want them to succeed more than anything and in order to do that they should listen to a decent sized customer base that they've been ignoring. You can argue that they've "Done their due diligence, and the market isn't there". Ultimately, their due diligence has caused problems of late. Lastly, I point out that Microsoft is fully embracing linux and porting it's .net runtime and development platform to it. I'm sure they've done their due diligence and have a much better strategy laid out than Evernote based on their current state. The sarcastic LOL in my post was based on the fact that you've repeatedly expressed your negative opinions in this thread where it wasn't even warranted. When rightfully so people pointed out evernotes current "issues" you sugar coated it and tried to make it seem normal to meet your dismissive agenda. Fact of the matter is they are in trouble and unless you want to use Google Keep or Onenote, it may be in your interest to advocate for a quality linux client.
  6. More "Focus" right, lol http://techcrunch.com/2015/12/23/evernotes-exits-continue-as-vps-of-partnerships-and-brand-both-move-on/
  7. Dull? Biased much? Executives leaving isn't refocusing... It's lack of direction.
  8. I was thinking this the other day and the article confirmed it, instead of focusing on a Linux app which may take a few developers, they tried to sell desk supplies and back packs. It doesn't even make sense. It sounds like it's days might be numbered...
  9. The most obvious was use of obscene language. The poster has since removed this. This has been, mostly, a serious subject discussed seriously. Misconstruing stuff and attempting to belittle contributors with tendentious comment at best gets us nowhere and and worst invites reprisals. To re-iterate my position: 1) EV have the right, nay a duty, to take business decisions in their perceived best interests of the stakeholders, 2) Not having a Linux agent has an impact beyond the Linux market 3) The application market is moving towards being OS agnostic. EV is getting increasingly out of line. 4) The current product priorities features over stability and standards conformance. 5) Trying to run EV under WINE is the canary indicating issues for some current & future Windows users. The bottom line is EV is losing valuable former supporters who would enthusiastically adopt and promote a genuinely good platform independent solution, I haven't found one yet and, I guess, EV are betting one will not come along. In which case they are making the right decision! That's my point for the most part no ones really violating the TOS, saying "you all should read this..." When it really doesn't apply doesn't make sense.

  11. Not sure I understand which TOS was violated?
  12. It is a business decision, hence people voicing their opinion through multiple mediums in an effort to change or drive that decision. Telling people get over it and move on is an emotional response, if that happened this thread would only have 2 posts. Whether it is removing GMOs from food, changing the way cable tv is priced or developing a Linux client of some app, people have a right to voice their opinion as long as it's not rude, threatening or violates the terms of service. If it bothers you to constantly have to respond, don't. There is no compelling reason for you to, people could read the history. Unless you are an Evernote employee, you are only speculating on their resource vs. business value decisions. If you are an employee, then you should disclose that when posting. I like Evernote, always have since Google retired their first notes project. But let's face it, the web client is nowhere near as functional, logical or easy to use as the native apps and mobile apps.
  13. I run Evernote in Wine on two different Fedora (20 & 21) boxes. Unfortunately the only version I've managed to get working is 5.6.4.4632, any newer than that and it wont start using Wine. I tried NixNote about a year ago, but I though it was too rough. And I agree with Brainsys comment also. I would love continue working with Evernote, but I'm affraid I have to start looking for an alternative since I'm a bit worried how long I can stay on 5.6.4 version. I've used evernote on wine with F21 for a while. I am currently using EN version 5.8.7.5 I think. It runs ok, sometimes I have issues but overall ok. The web is just lacking some features and also has some usability issues. I just say that Evernote was cutting jobs and closing offices and concentrating on business. It will suck if they ***** the consumer. I've been a premium user since the 09 or 10 and would hate to have to close my account.
  14. So you're saying that if people want something they should just shut up beacuse life isn't fair? Great attitude!Btw; cool nick.... +1 Linux version +1 Redo the osx client to be more like the windows version Obviously people don't understand supply and demand. While at the original time Evernote may have felt there wasn't demand, but it's our work to change that. Anyone who thinks it's final should look at companies that don't adapt. I mean Microsoft is considering going open source and porting .net to Linux. There is demand for .net on Linux. A quiet voice is no voice...
