  1. Full Featured Linux Client Please!
  2. Bear note taking app, $1.49 monthly or 14.99 yearly. It's only mac right now, but it's cleaner.
  3. 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.
  4. 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...
  5. Looks like evernote's trying to do whatever it can to put itself out of business.
  6. 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 L
  7. More "Focus" right, lol http://techcrunch.com/2015/12/23/evernotes-exits-continue-as-vps-of-partnerships-and-brand-both-move-on/
  8. Dull? Biased much? Executives leaving isn't refocusing... It's lack of direction.
  9. 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...
  10. 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)

  12. Not sure I understand which TOS was violated?
  13. 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 rea
  14. 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 issu
  15. 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...
  16. I think you miss the point by a country mile. This whole "we want Linux support" has gone WAY beyond simply "asking" for it. You have your answer ... in fact, you got your answer over and over and over. The answer is: "No!" In what way is it not like the yelling and stomping of a 2 year old to keep on insisting that you WANT it? Do you think that if you ask loud enough and long enough that the economics will suddenly make sense to the developer and you'll get it? You simply don't seem to grasp what is going on. This is not something that is your right and is being withheld from you by a
  17. It might be helpful for people to post a comment on this page looking to re-ignite some consideration around a native client. https://blog.evernote.com/blog/2015/01/05/evernote-tips-productive-2015/
  18. Yes, I have the same issue with the latest version on wine. As far as the web goes, performance is good but there are a number of issues with navigating notebooks, switching notebooks, moving notes etc....
  19. I'm pretty sure no one is saying there is not a need. What is being said, is that Evernote has stated publicly they had no plans to make a linux client & there has been no evidence they have changed that opinion. Just in case you missed it even though I quoted it, he asked WHO NEEDS DATA LOCALLY? SO he is saying there isn't a need... I didn't mention the business decision or anything else, if you can't take the time to read the post please don't comment.
  20. Wasn't referring to your post, I quoted phillipE
  21. ChromeOS isn't a workstation Linux distribution for a sys admin. As far as who needs data locally? Anyone with a laptop (consultants, engineers, sales engineers) that travel, work in remote sites, secured areas, closed datacenters, subways and tunnels, people who fly.... Just because it's not your need, doesn't mean the need doesn't exist.
  22. If you read the entirety of the topic, you'll see that the Evernote team (the CTO, in fact; about as official as you get) *has* chimed in already, more than once. They tend to not like to repeat themselves; if they change their minds, then you can bet that they'll may it public, and probably post about it right here, as they are well aware of the desire for an Evernote Linux client. The "deal with it attitude" comment probably a reflection on the rudeness of the poster being responded to, but let's face it; the Evernote stance should be pretty clear by now, and yet nobody seems to accept what
  23. gbarry as an evernote employee, it would be helpful for you or someone on your team to chime in. Maybe even put together a registry of users who would pay for the feature. The whole "deal with it" attitude from moderators is a horrible reflection on evernote. Some of us are customers, not just of premium subscriptions but of Jot note pen and moleskin notebooks etc.... If evernotes stance is truly "deal with it", then that is really sad and horrible customer service. Please let us know if that is the official evernotes stance because I will gladly cease all paid transaction with evernote.
  24. No one has said you (or anyone else) should not ask for a linux client. However, linux supporters are the ones who are telling the rest of us to stop posting our thoughts. This is a message board. If you post something, there's a really good chance someone else may have another idea or something of value to offer. IMO, odd that the "linux community" that is clamoring for an EN client is so against helping/modifying baumgarr's open source linux client. Especially since it's clear that at least in the near or not so near future, that's your best bet, if you don't like the web client or using Win
  25. Thanks, I got that information when the thread was started. I didn't need you to re-iterate it, nor did I ask you to. I'll continue to keep voicing my support for a linux client, you can continue to tell me that EN isn't interested and we can continue to cycle. Or you could just let people ask for a client and essentially request EN to take notice and possibly change their product direction. I really don't see the value you're adding anyway.
