As above. Any feature full note taking programs that you find good. Any up and coming ones to keep an eye on?

I use scratchpad from google it's available offline and sync with google docs - using your google account

org-mode of course ;)

But I actually find Tomboy quite nice for simple uses.

I use Evernote (online) at www.evernote.com and love it. Also the server side OCR is very nice too plus file attachments. They don't have a linux client. But someone created one in Java its called Nevernote. http://nevernote.sourceforge.net/ If you want or need an offline client it does work.

I use Xournal (http://robinsrantsandraves.wordpress.com/2011/08/10/xournal-a-fun-note-taking-pdf-annotating-app/). It lets me scrawl notes on a laptop touchpad in class and annotate pdfs as well.

Kate works nicely.

Or did you mean tools like Gnote, zim, knotes, Basket, Getting Things GNOME, etc.?

I use xpad, or gedit. I've heard good things about latex and pyroom but I haven't tried either.

Was just browsing OMG Ubuntu and saw this (http://www.omgubuntu.co.uk/2011/10/drag-drop-upload-evernote-ubuntu-evermutt/) and remembered seeing this thread too...

I like zim.

sudo apt-get install zim

For cloud-based notes:

+1 for Zim. Really a personal wiki.

I like Zim, too. Easy to use and surprisingly powerful. The only drawback is it's not cross-platform. I do, however, use Dropbox to share my Zim data between several Linux machines.

"Emacs" is a more helpful suggestion.

Using Xpad right now. I'd definitely recommend it if you need some virtual sticky notes.
