I would think they have a pretty good idea how many of their users are linux users and how many of those pay for the service. If there was value in it I'm sure they'd have done it already.

I'm curious as to how do you think can they differentiate? As you can eiter use a windows app (wine) or the web client?

Most analytics tools will report the OS and browser that the request is  coming from. At a guess, the number of users using wine is just too small to be interesting. 

 

Linux is still a tiny niche on the user desktop, it's also regularly used by students and organisations that are not cash rich as well as techies who are likely to look for free/cheaper alternatives.

 

As I said, if there was a good user case for building a native client for Linux then I'm sure they'd have done it. They've built for a lot of platforms in the past.

You know, the thing is... Evernote is not against using Linux to make money. They evidently use it on their servers: https://blog.evernote.com/tech/2013/10/10/inside-evernote-phil-jensen/, it's in their switches, routers, firewalls, storage, etc.

 

I bet some users (IT or other) use Ubuntu on their desktops/laptops.

 

So they want to USE it, but not release their own product for Linux.  In my book that makes you a leech as a company.

I know they don't care, but I've left evernote. I'm using other local tools that are available on my linux desktop.

 

@evernote: Don't become a moneygrabbing faceless coporation like for instance Oracle, invest a bit of time and money for a real linux version. It may surprise you how many people start using it.

Of course it makes tons of sense to use Linux in the data centre - that's where the vast majority of linux machines are.

 

But not writing a native app for linux doesn't make them a 'leech' - it just means in the data centre they are using what they think is the best platform.

 

People have to get away from thinking this is an emotional decision, this is all about business.

Yes, Linux makes a lot of sense in the datacenter. And also on the desktop. More then people seem to think.

And yes in my view it does make them a leech.

 

I also agree this is a business decision. Just like Oracle makes all kinds of business decisions......

 

What I'm looking for is a company with a more open view to the world, and not with the goal of squeezing every last dollar out of a product.

OK, I shouldn't be bothering with this...

 

A leech drains from it's host. Evernote uses Linux in the data centre and I assume pays for Nix Admins, probably some support and some software. Seems like they are not leeching there.

 

Unfortunately, real world experience shows that Linux really isn't a great desktop choice for the vast, vast majority of the world - if it was, more people would use it.

 

Sounds to me like you are looking for an open source solution that is built and maintained by a community (like Linux). Evernote isn't like that, Evernote is a commercial organisation with bills to pay.

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.

Business decision or poor planning. I love how random interwebz people come in here and talk like an Evernote ceo.

Computer + opinion, means knowledgeable these days. Give someone mod status because they have nothing better to do with their time and they they're a god. Fluffy computing is going to people's ego. Lmao

I've been around here a long time and have a decent feel for how Evernote have made decisions in the past. They've also been really explicit on this subject.

 

Whinging because they won't support your niche OS, claiming some sort of discrimination or some universal right just makes me laugh.

Having the time to make over 5000 posts on Evernote forums only proves you have too much time on your hands. Aside from putting words in my mouth (or posts), the only problem I have is justifications for your opinion. In case you didn't realize, it stinks.

 

Please go to your Winblows, and let us upper-echolon users/developers discuss our operating system of choice. There is no way to block you, and you're stinking (I mean littering) this topic with opinion.

 

You use Windows! Why are you opinionating amongst us, who are trying to discuss Evernote in Linux? We have heard your opinion. Now kindly go help some Grandma log into their Evernote. Thank you, and happy Windowing and opinionating. LMAO

 

FYI: Linux users don't like reading irrelavent posts and opinion. Most of us are developers, sys admins, consultants, etc.... You are wasting our time with dumb replies based on opinion. Go increase your post-count helping someone.

As someone that is using Linux Mint currently, I'd have to ask the various posters if they have tried NixNote as an alternate client in Linux?

 

I mean, sure I'd love to see a native client, but Evernote has indicated in the past that they do not plan on developing one. There are ways to work around it, and I believe people have had decent luck with WINE.

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. 

 

 

May I ask what you did to get 5.8.7.5 working? I've managed to get one version of 5.8 (dont remember which one any more). But that one had issue with sorting. My notebooks were just random, not in alphabetical like I want it. And I couldn't create notebook stacks, well, actually I could create them, but couldn't put anything in them. And all my collections becomes empty when I upgrade to 5.8.

 

If you don't have those issues, I would really like to know if you did any specific configs for Wine.

Not sure I understand which TOS was violated?

 

 

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!

Slack has a bloody beta app for linux.
THERE IS NO JUSTIFICATION OF EVERNOTE NOT HAVING ONE. THEY GREW ASTRONOMICALLY, SO HAD EVERNOTE, THEY EARN MORE MONEY THAN YOU ALREADY, AND ARE STILL ABLE TO DEVELOP AN APP, AND ARE ALSO BETTING ON LINUX.
so lets all stop the "business decision" rhetrhorical bullshit, and just accept the fact that evernote has linux users deep up their colon.

I'm a premium Evernote user and my biggest problem is the lack of a native Linux client. The web version just doesn't cut it in many respects. Evernote recently announced layoffs and office closures because they had lost focus and were expanding way beyond their core business.  Let's hope they focus on their main product again and bring us a Linux client!

I am senior developer. I have a huge amount of notes, ready to pull into Evernote.

But now I see this. No native linux client.

 

I did try to run the latest Evernote client with wine and I got after installation a complaint

from the client, I was not connected to the internet... Good start.

 

Actually it does surprise me to read those things about Evernote.

 

If this client is written in .net there is the MONO Framework and case solved.

 

It looks to be like this is the same issue we see SourceTree, a nice Git client, currently no Linux client !

 

With developer tools, well, of course You can get away with it.But Evernote is not only a tool for developers.

However, IT specialists are using linux and a lot of them do visit many customers with their recommendations !

 

May I say, currently, I will not recommend Evernote and I do look for alternatives, now I did read this thread !

 

Sorry guys, but this is amateurism.

Evernote is not written in .Net (I think version 4 on Windows was, but that is ancient history). It should work properly in Wine. In the past there where a few issues related to the openssl version used by your distro/wine. (https://discussion.evernote.com/topic/26978-ssl-handshake-problems/ ).

 

Anyway, it would be more helpful to further elaborate on the issues you encounter running in wine (version of Linux/distro, wine and Evernote for a start)

Ok. I take the challenge.

 

Clean Ubuntu x64.

 

#uname -srmop
Linux 4.3.0-040300-generic x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux

 

#sudo add-apt-repository ppa:ubuntu-wine/ppa

#sudo apt-get update

#sudo apt-get install wine1.7 winetricks

 

Install Evernote_5.9.1.8742.exe for all users.

 

Results:

Could not connect to server.

 

Oh, and do not tell me I have to use wine 1.4 and playonlinux

Yes been there (Kubuntu 15.04), Got the same message and T-shirt. Did the usual tricks, none worked. Even when I got an earlier version working it broke on an upgrade and screwed the registry. Wine/Evenote is not a stable solution. Nay I don't think its a geek solution either.

 

NixNote 2 beta 4 will install with a bit of fiddling with backport repositories to include some deprecated libraries and then works very well. So that is a geek solution but not a deployable solution. Let's face it Evernote with Linux don't mix and the company intends to keep it that way. Fine it is their choice but the Wine failures do suggest to Windows users that this is a fragile highly tailored piece of software that isn't written to common standards. They should take care making this a mission critical application. They have the choice. We don't.

 

That is the reason why Evernote is not on my client recommendation list. I do think the company is being short sighted in not even committing to a platform independent solution at the next re-write. That's the way most of the rest of the industry is heading. If they can't afford that can they afford to stay in the business?

How's that business going for ya? Still no Linux app? I hope I will be able to use my notes after all of you flop to hell...

Lazy unicorn startup business idiots

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...

Actually sounds more like focus to me. They are reducing costs and it appears have increased revenue with the new pricing model.

 

Doubt it's days are numbered, hopefully they will concentrate on the core app and service. Still doubt that they'll bother with a Linux client but that's an oft repeated and dull argument.

It's only a matter of time before someone comes up with an alternative that can import evernote notes like Thinkery.

Although I have not been able to import all my notes to Thinkery successfully yet, I have around 75% imported as of now.

If anyone from Thinkery is reading this forum, They should seriously improve on their evernote import code. Then this thread would become dead.

 

As a Linux only user and developer for as long as I can remember :D, I will quickly dump Evernote as soon as I can export all my existing notes. It's unfortunate for me that I didn't research the company and their view of Linux before I started using it.

 

I believe it's their business and their right to do as they please and I am not going to be among those begging them to conform. There are alternatives.

Nothing remains on top forever.

 

Give Thinkery a try. Especially those who don't already have massive library of Evernote data already. If you are just starting out and you are using Linux, try Thinkery.

 

And no I am not affiliated with them in any way. I'm always on the look out for something better.

What would make Thinkery better than Evernote? I'm looking at their website, and I see no mention of any Linux client, just their web and mobile apps. If that's all they're offering, there's no major benefit over using the Evernote web app, unless there's something I'm missing.

There is no 60 meg limit. And you're right, there is no Linux client. It's web based but it serves me well. I needed something like evernote that I could communicate with any OS that I encounter day to day. Linux, and Android. And it works fine for me. It may not be for everyone but I'm sure there are many that never heard of it that would find it useful like the many I have personally introduced it to that are very happy with their new choice.

 

I know this doesn't solve the Linux client problem directly but indirectly, the more choices people have other than Evernote, the more Evernote may have to find new ways to "reattract" those they have lost to alternatives. Attracting the Linux community would be a good step for them in my humble opinion.

They wouldn't even have to reinvent the wheel. They could easier partner with the Nixnote community to improve their Linux client which would be very nice if it worked as advertised.

 

Again, IMHO.

 

As for me, As soon as I can export/import all my notes to Thinker or any other similar app, Evernote is history for me. All my current and new notes go to Thinkery with it's browser/android clients.

 

Of course it also all depends on what you use Evernote for. It has many features that I personally don't use. I could be wrong but I assume that most Evernote users primarily use it for clipping like I do. And if that's true, then there's Thinkery.

 

But if you are using it for it's collaboration features then Thinkery is not ideal.

 

Lastly, I do not wish to get into any debate/argument with anyone about my post. I'm offering a suggestion or possible alternative to a problem which I faced for those who may not have known of any possible solution.

 

If it helped you, fine, If not, also fine.

:D

There is an article about NixNote 2 Beta 5 coming out which is supposed to work with Evernote.

 

http://www.webupd8.org/2015/11/evernote-linux-client-nixnote-2-beta-5.html

 

These are never as good as an official version for Linux (like Google changing their Drive API so that the solutions no longer work until they are updated), but it at least helps.

 

I'll probably give it a try this week, but am not expecting too much out of it yet.

I am running NixNote beta 4 as I'm still looking for an alternate solution. Beta 4 is actually quite good. It is just not suitable for enterprise deployment because, as with previous versions, it used depracated libraries. I could only get it working under Kubuntu 15.10 with a fix to the configuartion file. You can find how to do that in the github comments. Hopefully beta 5 may have sorted this but, because of the very nature of the beast, it may fail again when we get to 16.04, 16.10 ...

 

Its so annoying that Evernote appear to have an almost perfect solution on their doorstep that with a little support could close this thread and get them some revenue and kudos that would more than repay the effort.

Unfortunately it appears that they just don't care. From a business perspective I'm confused at their stance. Like I said in my earlier post, they could easily "partner" with the nixnote2 team which has most of the work done already. But like I said, they apparently just don't give a s__t.  ;)

I would not recommend using Thinkery, it seems like all development stoped in 2014. There has been no communiction from them in over a year. Having all my personal info in a system that doesn't seem to be maintained isn't something I would recommend.

I would not recommend using Thinkery, it seems like all development stoped in 2014. There has been no communiction from them in over a year. Having all my personal info in a system that doesn't seem to be maintained isn't something I would recommend.

 

I see your point. I don't rely on Thinkery solely. I currently use many "note" apps but I thought I would just mention them.

It's only a matter of time before someone comes up with an alternative that can import evernote notes like Thinkery.

Although I have not been able to import all my notes to Thinkery successfully yet, I have around 75% imported as of now.

If anyone from Thinkery is reading this forum, They should seriously improve on their evernote import code. Then this thread would become dead.

 

As a Linux only user and developer for as long as I can remember :D, I will quickly dump Evernote as soon as I can export all my existing notes. It's unfortunate for me that I didn't research the company and their view of Linux before I started using it.

 

I believe it's their business and their right to do as they please and I am not going to be among those begging them to conform. There are alternatives.

Nothing remains on top forever.

Funny thing. 

I am trying out Evernote, even a paid version, but I'm worried to really put my notes there from precisely this reason -- I don't want to invest time into company that may cease to exist. 

 

From my point of view, I care about linux version and -- if not possible -- about web client that is full-featured and works offline (yes, it is possible and there are apps that do that, like Google Doc in chrome or todoist.com). Also backing up without windows is not really supported. (Call me paranoid, but if I cannot back-up my notes every week, I don't want to use the service.) 

For none of this there's been no progress for many years (and it appears there won't be ever?). 

Makes me wander why did I pay for this ... I guess good marketing works for a limited time ... 

 

For what it's worth, thinkery is in the process of open-sourcing there codebase, which may make it possible for other to develop further. 

(But they, too, sadly have no linux client and no offline editing.)

I agree, backup is very important. And right now, I have the windows client working through Wine. But I haven't been able to update in over a year. So I'm getting worried. If the client stops working, then I can't continue using Evernote, since I too want to be able to have offline backups regulary.

 

I really wish all these new "cloud" apps would implement backup support. Because without that, I simply wont use it.

Actually sounds more like focus to me. They are reducing costs and it appears have increased revenue with the new pricing model.

 

Doubt it's days are numbered, hopefully they will concentrate on the core app and service. Still doubt that they'll bother with a Linux client but that's an oft repeated and dull argument.

More "Focus" right, lol

Turnover at the top has been the new normal for a while now. Sinkov's departure wasn't expected, but it isn't a surprise either. I had the opportunity to talk with him a few years ago, and he struck me as a sharp guy, so it's Evernote's loss, but I'm sure there is other talent out there. Until Evernote gets its momentum back, we can probably expect more news like this. It's too early to tell yet if this signals the beginning of the end or a new beginning. 

 

Whatever happens, though, I doubt they are abandoning a bunch of products and platforms to focus on Linux :)

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.

I am looking forward to seeing if the new team in charge will acknowledge the Linux users who've been loyal, PAYING customers despite having their nose rubbed into the "it's a business decision" adopted rhetoric of the Evernote mouthpieces here in the forum. Frankly, it's piss poor customer service on Evernote's part. Not so much as a sincere apology for the inconvenience. Just "business", folks, so you'll have to deal with it. You keep using "business", but I don't think the old team knew the meaning of that word. You make great software, Evernote, but you suck at making your customers feel heard.

True. And we continue to pay, because evernote is kinda irreplaceable for me. Unfortunately, no other service provides this level of integration and ease of use.

I run evernote android via chromium apps (archon) on kde5. It's kinda charming.

To the Management and Programmers of Evernote,

I am an avid user and premium subscriber of Evernote for two years. I heavily depend on Evernote for all my Medicine notes [I am a Physician by profession] and all day-to-day to-dos.

I have been seeing this that Evernote team never even tries to develop an app for LInux. I like to use LInux more than Windows 10 [That has serious pivacy issues] and it's for only Evernote I have to shift between LInux and Windows, I am presently dual booting Linux and Windows 10.

I would really appreciate if someone from Evernote Team gives an official explanation on 'Why Evernote still does not have a LInux app' ?

The members in several LInux forums are of opinion that Evernote thinks Linux users are not capable enough to purchase Evernote subscription. I Hope that is not true.

Please don't tell about Evernote web  [Although I am a premium subscriber I don't like to keep my documents in the cloud] or the several alternatives or wine, I have tried them all.

Thanks. Ardently waiting for reply from someone with official capacity.

Are there more Windows Surface users than all the flavors of Linux? I doubt it. 

Given where Microsoft is going in terms of stomping on user privacy with very few and limited opt outs, I imagine a not insignificant percentage of Windows users are going to pass on Windows 10 when they reach their next hardware upgrade decision. And for those abandoning Windows over privacy concerns, Apple doesn't offer a safe haven, and neither does Chromebook. Linux is very appealing from that perspective.

I wonder if Evernote has any way of knowing how many EN users are operating on Linux, whether it's a 3rd party app, or EN Windows on Wine. That information might inform their decision as to whether a Linux version is worthwhile, as opposed to leaving the current options for Linux users - 3rd party apps, Windows app on Wine, web app.

I just updated to Fedora 23 and with that, I was able to use a much newer version of Evernote than before. My startup issue is also gone. The version of Evernote that works in Fedora 23 is: 5.8.13.8152

Fyi, I didn't manage to get 5.9 to work. I got an issue with the document side of Evernote not updating when selecting a new document. I saw some reports that some people also had that issue on Windows, so I will try with 5.9 when they release a new version of it.

If Evernote will be available for Linux, I'll support using this client only for premium users. And I'll buy premium.  Yes, you can discriminate us, and doesn't permit to use Linux Evernote client without premium.

Please note: main part of Linux users is IT specialists, and IT specialists usually have a good salary. Steam provides more games for Linux, and Linux users pay for steam.

I have been a linux admin and daily driver for 7+ years now.  I have actually found the windows client to get in my way in the few times I have used it.  But I am coming at this problem from the other direction.  I think the web interface is fantastic!

Now, I do like to have apps in their own window, if I use them frequently, so what I have done is setup a "Desktop Shortcut" with Chrome, and the web interface happily opens a isolated window using the web interface.  Works great for me!

I have found that in the "transition period" of moving from one OS to another, there are some things you have to let go of. :)  Windows did it to me everytime they upgraded, but now I am happy and more effective in my job with my xfce desktop.

There is still not an official Linux version! This requirement was asked by users for years.

I bought Plus months ago, and planned to buy Premium later. No, I was wrong! It was too difficult to use its Web client when I use Ubuntu, which is my main OS.

I tried NixNote2, but several days went by, the whole notes of mine aren't be synchronized yet! The API limited the number of notes which can be downloaded in a batch. 

3000+ notes are stored in my evernote, I don't want to try other alternations , but I don't know if I have to try them.

A sad story for Linux user.

I've been waiting for this for years, but now I think i have a different approach. One which may be the best in the short term, and something which "kills two birds with one stone" as it makes linux support more of a fringe benefit to a larger customer wish, backups.

I want evernote to make my versioned notebooks available in evernote markup as git repositories. And to allow me to update my evernote information from these git repositories.

That's it.

This is what i am campaigning for now.

The rationale:

  1. I have an easy backup mechanism - running git clone on a regular basis.
  2. Anyone who can use git, will want (and understand) this feature, which would be amazing for Windows, OsX, and Linux.
  3. We can then use any other external tool to manipulate EML, and evernote.
  4. Even better, i make it easier for linux people (and other computer (ab)users to do whatever they want with regards to automation around my evernote notes.
  5. Lowers the barrier for 3rd party integration and innovation on all platforms.

So I'm going to create a separate feature request thread on this topic, and I'd appreciate if Linux client wishers gave to +1 it.

Let my foul language not take us off the point that Evernote is intentionally not giving a damn about FOSS users.

Even when we pay, we get less than users of others platforms. This is not a business decision any more, it's concious discrimination of a growing group of people who trust themselves enough to manage their own data, and don't need walled gardens.

"Not our app" - dear Guru, you can assist me by advocating the developers to spend a week developing a Linux app instead of stickers and analog notebooks.

When there is a need, there is a way. And I really hope that Evernote will need to make an official linux client.

And no, you are wrong that this is the same as Windows or other web systems. You are completely off course, in fact.

Evernote.Is.A.SERVICE

It's not a product, it's a SERVICE I'm paying each year for.
I don't see people with an official Windows 10.5, or with official Windows Falcon Edition. There is a single product across all platforms. The same applies to browsers etc - I am paying Spotify for premium (even though their linux client is 6 months stale) and I get the same experience on Linux as on Windows. I am also paying github, because git is a tool I use daily. Git doesn't need a windowed app for maximum productivity.

Evernote does.

With Evernote, I'm paying for lousy access to services and data with an Android app and a Web client, which is nowhere near the app on other, walled-garden platforms.

Which sounds to me pretty much like discrimination against a certain platform.

Hello,

I am exactly in the same case, I tested all kind of solutions to have something really usable with Linux (Web version, a dedicated Windows VM, all third party apps) I'm just tired of paying a service that offers no solution for Linux users.

Here is my solution that can possibly interest people who own a Synology NAS in this forum.

Note Station can be installed via Google Chrome web store, it's not a simple web page, it's a real app and is fast.

And there is a killing feature -> import from Evernote! on 1 click I have restored all my books.

Negative point, I lost a great Evernote feature (send note by mail).

Positive points:

- All my datas are now stored in my NAS, and I can make an automatic encrypted backup on the cloud.

- The Synology web clipper works very well

- Android version also available (iOS also I suppose)

Shouldn't you be making this request to the Nixnote people?

One possibility is to create a placeholder like Ω.  You can followup on a different platform and replace them with checkboxes.

Hi Evernote,

History: Many have been shouting since 2013 for a Linux client but yet there is no change is decisions.

Response: Linux has less number of users.

Facts:

  • Even Microsoft have started shipping Ubuntu(Windows subsystem for Linux) in there Windows 10 desktop insider preview.
  • Unity3D they also started developing Linux client.
  • Untitled.png
  • We even have Office Suite(libreoffice), Image Editing(Gimp), 3D(Blender) for Linux.

Question:

  • Why did a company which hated Linux(Microsoft) have to love it now?

To newbi, even though it appears it may be too late:

I feel the same as you. I love Evernote AND Linux, although there is no intention to support Evernote (Premium) users on Linux.  Instead of dual booting (!), I have found that the best solution is to run the native Windows Evernote client in a virtual machine running Windows. It is quite simple, actually. I use the free Oracle VirtualBox running Windows 7. It has the added advantage that you have a "Windows window" at hand for those other few, increasingly rare cases where you absolutely need to use that OS: poorly designed Microsoft Word/Powerpoint files that don't look good on the open source alternatives, custom apps you developed ages ago, obsolete windows-only apps, hardware devices with no or poor Linux drivers (e.g., printers), etc.

Having said that, Evernote guys please develop a Linux client. I am sure there are enough Linux users willing to pay for that app.

While I would love to have a native Linux desktop client, the sad fact is that Linux as an desktop OS only have ~1.5% market share. As to why MS "love" Linux (which I don't think is true) is because of the server side. And to answer your 3rd question, Evernote already have a native Android client... so they don't have to do anything.

Btw, while Android is built on Linux, there is very little in common between Android and Desktop versions of Linux. So in this context you cant really compare them.

While I am much the LINUX head like others in this thread they do have a web version of the app and syncs just fine with entries from your mobile. Even if you did choose the Google Keep route, it's same concept. At least this is in a way platform independent. For notes this option to me will work just fine and I don't need to install anything. Besides I probably use it more on my mobile than desktop anyway. I am glad they have a web version and no need to even install a chrome extension which from what I read in the reviews is not that great.

I have used Evernote for about two years now. I am a premium subscriber.

I started out with Evernote on my Macbook at my former employeer (I did use the mac at work and at home). At home I also have a Windows Desktop for games and such. I did install Evernote Client there aswell. I do have Evernote on my phone also. I recently changes employer but I got to keep my mac. At my new workplace I run Linux. So no I would really like the possibility to run Evernote on linux.

I am a paying customer and I have 3+ platforms running that I use at home, work or on the road.

So no I have to run the web client on my Linux...that kinda sucks I must admit.

Hope that the evernote team would give a clear explanation soon.

I'm not sure what you want as a response.
Evernote has been clear from the beginning that they would not be developing a Linux client

Totally agree, a version for linux would be great. The web-version is missing out on a lot of features the client-programs has. A solution which would benefit everyone is to improve the web-based version, Why not making it work like the client-program for windows/mac? Pretty sure the mac version is better than the one windows got, even though I haven't tried it. Evernote seem to focus a lot on the Apple devices, which is kind of a bummer if you like evernote, but not the Apple-products :P

If there is a Linux version of Evernote, there should be more users of Linux.

I had used Ubuntu more than Windows before, but because of Evernote, I switched to use Windows. Now I switch to use Linux as my main OS, I got trouble on Evernote again.

Yes, I can use a third-party client instead, like nixnote2, but Everonte API limits the number of notes to synchronize! I have 3000+ notes, even a week past by, they were not synchronized to my local machine!

If they don't plan to publish an official client for Linux, they should not limit the API of Evernote for the third-party clients.

Yes, I can use the browser version, but it's a terrible experience I hate it! Very slow, hard to edit, and etc..

However, I'd love to use an official Linux client.

Like many of you on this thread, I'm also a huge fan of Evernote and a Linux user. It kills me that Evernote spends so much time on many (useful and cool) features, but seems totally uninterested in developing a native Linux client. It's frustrating as hell

Far as "not enough Linux users". Linux users are usually people who are tech savvy and NEED to keep notes. I'm an I.T. professional and NEED notes. But being an I.T. professional I understand the benefits of using Linux as my primary workstation.

 

Sure there are 100 million Windows users for every single Linux user. But how many out of that one million have needs for a paid subscription to Evernote?  Linux users: professional I.T. people who are more computer scientists. As well students taking Computer Science. So... the majority of Linux users could use a paid subscription to Evernote. I'd love to incorporate Evernote into my I.T. process and share documented procedures with Sals and Customer Service people. But at work I use Linux as my primary desktop, running a VM for Windows administration.

 

So my money is better spent on other solutions. I've slowly been phasing Evernote out of my needs, and working with other solutions. Mainly native Linux apps that can export to OneNote. :-)

 

BTW - this is one of the biggest threads in these forums: 15 pages and counting.  Also, all evernote would need to do is: 

- make subdomain linuxproject.evernote.com

- sign up developers to work for FREE (that's what people who love linux do, make cool stuff)

- start a project on GitHub

- fork current stable to download at linuxproject.evernote.com in .debs, .rpm, and current source

- watch I.T. professionals, C.S. professors and C.S. students give them credit cards to bill monthly.

This is not difficult to do and make money. Maybe there is more here, like open source people scrutinizing security????

Oh well - its finally goodbye Evernote.

I was an Evernote evangelist - though never a premium member as I had to depend on somebody else's Linux client (thank you Nixnote) hence no support from EV. When they declared NeverLinux I stopped recommending a product that would tie our clients to one declining OS. I also made sure it didn't become mission critical in my company. But it was still useful. Until now.

Making two user unless you pay for no supported client makes it useless to us. EV clearly are now interested in only the premium Windows market so our departure won't be missed. So its SimpleNote for us. Not as good but probably good enough. At least it has a supported Linux client and third party clients too.

I just wonder if our dismay and disappointment is matched by our Windows colleagues since in our search for a replacement we couldn't help notice how even anti-Microsoft folks had to admit OneNote was pretty good. If its true then I fear EV will have fallen from an industry leader to an also ran trying to squeeze the last tranche of revenue from a legacy product.

Evernote premiun user. There are plenty of cross-platform languages, there is no excuse at all, there is no Linux Evernote.

If evernote values her customers, they should create a client that works on every OS, including Linux

Is it your opinion that there's enough paying customers to cover the cost of developing this product?
