Subject: KeePass2 versus KeePassX
Happy New Year to everyone!!

I have been using KeePass2 on my Ubuntu machine for over 10 years (through
wine), and I just discovered KeePassX as a native application. I use
Keepass2 primarily as a password backup, as I also use LastPass with the
chrome extension for my day to day password manager.

I have a couple of questions about moving from KeePass2/wine to KeePassX.

I found in one post that the differences that the database files are binary
compatible. (
Can anyone confirm this?

The only other difference (other that GUI related stuff) is that KeePass2
has plugins and KeePassX does not. I am not using any plugins now. Are
there any that you think are really valuable to have, and would be a reason
not to switch?

Should I switch to KeePassX? I am assuming I can get rid of wine and save
some disk space, and run a native application instead of a wine application.
