Dragging is what bothers me. I practically live inside emacs and
pressing one key to capture stuff is about 5 times faster than doing
it by dragging, that is, if the app I want to capture from happens to
be on the same desktop. I have grown a habit of capturing absolutely
everything, which is eased by the fact that I redirect everything I
can to IRC or my mailbox, which gives me a very efficient note-taking
and communication system. I also have the capability of capturing
links to stuff on a remote system (which Evernote can't do). Also,
Evernote has no integrated calendar, which really hurts, in org I can
capture and add a scheduled/deadline timestamp to the item which
effectively implements GTD's recommendation of "using the item itself
as a reminder". The only useful thing I've ever done with Evernote is
take advantage of the OCR search, which means I can capture physical
things fast with the smartphone and find them later via search, like
bookmarking a page from a physical book or capturing a business card.
