View Full Version : [ubuntu] Best note taking software?

I am a person switching over form Windows to Ubuntu. OK, I did that a while ago, but I am still getting used to the software that Ubuntu has to offer.

I am just wandering what is the best alternative to OneNote? I am currently using basKet, but I am just curious as to whether there are other note-taking software that is just as good as either Basket or OneNote. Because I find that adding pictures into BasKet is a bit of a pain (considering the fact that I need KolourPaint in order for that to work. There is also the issue of resizing the image).

Any advice would be greatly appreciated. Thanks

Have a look at "Is there a Linux equivalent to Microsoft Onenote?" on http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=93742

I've found Zim (http://zim-wiki.org/) good for my needs - maybe give it a look!

Tomboy is great. It's installed by default.

Tomboy is great, but kinda slow. The performance is much better if you add the tomboy applet to gnome panel.

Using wine use Evernote. It also has a great web clipping tool.

What would be really nice is to keep a Tomboy database on a flash drive and take it from computer to computer. I use three different Ubuntu boxes regularly and it would be very beneficial to be able to do that. Has anyone heard of a way to do something like that?

Have you enabled the "sync" plugins?

I've not enabled the sync plug-in, but will play with that. Thanks much for the suggestion.
