Thanks for appreciating my previous post on the same topic. With the launch of the web version, evernote has become even more popular. They have their windows and mac version but still there is no linux version of evernote.

In my earlier post, I described how we can use ‘wine’ to install evernote on linux. Now an open source clone of evernote (called Nevernote) is available which could be installed on linux.

“This is an open source clone of Evernote designed to run on Linux.  It is written in Java so it will also run on Windows & OS-X, but the primary focus has been to try and get a usable environment for Linux.  While this is designed to work with Evernote, it is in no way connected with or supported by Evernote.  Any problems you encounter will not be corrected by them and, since this is GPL software, you are using this software at your own risk.”

You can find more information about Nevernote from their homepage.


Real Player 11 though as not much popular these days, did strike back big with cool features with its version 11 allowing downloading streaming video.
