The new release of Gnote and its significance. A former Novell engineer has just released a new version of Gnote, whose great value we explained in [1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6]. The project is growing quickly because it's mostly a constructive port to Microsoft-independent grounds.Read more »
This is a review of three of the most popular notes-taking applications for Linux: BasKet, Tomboy and KNotes. I included the screenshots below the reviews, at the end of the article.
In my opinion, this is the most powerful and beautiful notes application I've ever seen. The last stable version is 126.96.36.199 for KDE3, but a port is in the works for KDE4 too.
