Interesting piece.  That screen shot of an early (first?) edition of Evernote on Windows was a hoot.  Using a handwriting font to make it look like Evernote 1.0 supported handwriting.  So retro.

I cringe whenever I see a new report that Evernote’s future is uncertain (or grim). If they do go belly-up, I hope they give us enough lead time to migrate to another system. What are the alternatives that have Evernote’s functionality?

I would not want to see Evernote die.

But, on the other hand, I’ve never had a case where a developer, without warning, vanished or went out of business and their app simultaneously and immediately stopped working and my data were unretrievable. 

(Web-only apps and Circus Ponies and its execrable developer being the outliers here.)

Even Bento still launches seven years after Apple up and abandoned it.  The 64-bit thing is about to catch up with Bento and it will stop in 6 - 12 months.  But the app itself is still usable today.

I actually fondly remember that version of Evernote. I liked the scrolling roll of notes on the timeline. I wish someone would bring that format back to note-taking.
