doff, i think that's is a swell idea, we might put some people together to develop a linux based evernote client, without any ugly ui design,and we can allow programmer put their AD in the client to makeup to them.
Hi Doff. Welcome to the forums!
Interesting idea The Evernote API is out there, so a third-party developer could make this happen with some kind of integration. If you could get a developer on board, you are good to go.
I can't speak for Evernote, of course, but my guess is that they are unwilling to take on the project, because they have already decided not to devote resources to the platform, not because they lack the money. It isn't a one-time thing for them, after all, but support they have to continue for years and years. In order to maintain parity across different clients, they'd have to hire a team to keep updating the application. A third-party wouldn't be operating under the same constraints, and they might even be able to make money off sales of their application to Linux users.
