Looks like the options for Windows are Personal Knowbase and CintaNotes.

I have an interesting puzzle which may just mean I hold off on this type of program.

Personal Knowbase doesn’t work for me because notes are all in their own windows. The tape display of EverNote really made the program for me.
CintaNotes is seriously limited because it only has one database.

It makes me think, “who cares if EN isn’t supported anymore. My copy still works”
But EN’s export feature derails that idea. It doesn’t export into any format that I have faith in being accessible any farther in the future than .enb will be. I could live with a dead-end application if I knew I could port the information forward. But the combination of non-standard export and non-supported application does it in for me.

Multiple databases is in the CintaNotes planned features. And we will see what skylark has up his sleeve…

I’d be surprised if more tag-based PIMs don’t appear soon; tags have become the modern way to organise stuff, to the extent that their “superiority” over hierarchical systems has been highlighted by works such as D.Weinberger’s “Everything is miscellaneous”. (There is of course also the best of both worlds—hierarchical tags)

Re exporting from Evernote 2:
- I understand that the note export feature creates an XML file which should be readable by software such as Treeline among others (though I haven’t tried it myself)
- One can use Evernote 3 as an intermediate stage; v.3 uses SQLite as infrastructure, so its files should be readable by the program (again, I haven’t tried it myself)

In both cases some programming knowledge may be rquired, but I think that the data is much safer than in other proprietary formats that I can think of.

I have to put in a word for Surfulater ... it’s a bit more complex than evernote 2.2, but it’s powerful and the developer is very active. It’s got the structure and tags. I’m still using evernote 2.2, but I am keeping Surfulater in my back pocket just in case.

I love Surfulater. It has both tag and folder structure. I wish tag tree had as much functionality as folder tree.

I finally made the switch to Evernote when the value of having a synchronized backup on the web became clear to me.

Another fact was when I made my mind up about a year ago that I was going to get back into the Mac world. Having everything in the cloud makes it easier changing computers and systems.

Neville, the developer for Surfulator is a standup guy, and very responsive to user comments and needs.
