Someone recently recommended Evernote and I wanted to see if anyone has an opinion on this software as their main task management system. It seems like it might be overkill

Having been an Evernote user for the last year or so, I'd say it can be (almost) whatever you want it to be.

I use it for recording notes, snippets, bookmarks and yes, todo lists. Use the 'insert checkbox' option (ctrl+shift+c) and there you go, an instant todo list. Coupled with notebooks and tags it's pretty flexible.

Each to their own 'n all that, but it works well as a task manager for me.

Evernote is not a task management system, it's a document archiving solution (with features to sort, tag and annotate documents).

If you're looking for a task management solution, I suggest you check Remember The Milk.
