This post interested me because Evernote is not a product I use. For various reasons, when I was looking for a function such as provided by Evernote, I opted to go with Zotero. Although I may choose to download Evernote to experiment with it, I will need to do so at home.
For Thing 9 then, I instead chose to look for comparisons between Evernote, One Note and Zotero. I found some useful commentary at One Note Vs Evernote, Round Two and Zotero: The best notetaking / bookmarking hybrid you’re not using
I chose Zotero for several reasons. I use Firefox. at home and have it at work as well. I have my netbook and my work computer sync’d so I have access to everything on both computers. Zotero will also work on a Linux system and my home computer is Linux based.
But the bottom line is that Zotero has features I need and use a lot. I think in part a person uses what they get used to and find meets their needs. I intend to try Evernote and keep an open mind.
