    Would you agree that OneNote is the best note-taking application?

    One of the reasons why I had a hard time moving from windows to Ubuntu before is OneNote. I just stumbled upon this Lifehacker article and it reminded me of the application that I always loved.

    When I moved to Linux, I wasn't really considering virtualization. I found Basket Note Pads and it served as a OneNote alternative for me. After a while, I stopped using basked and I just settled with Tomboy notes since I am a GNOME user and Tomboy works better for me because it's much lighter and is more integrated with my DE.

    When I compare Tomboy with OneNote, I think of the OneNote's many features that Tomboy doesn't. OneNote might not have those wiki-style links but it is much more powerful. You can put multimedia on your notes, the presentation of notes is much better, etc.

    Do you think that OneNote is the best note-taking application?

    AFAIK OneNote is for Professionals and Note Making enthusiasts and Tomboy is for personal use.
    So I am not sure that OneNote is the best note making app for everyone.

    I prefer Zim for taking notes, though I don't take many. OpenOffice, Emacs and/or LaTeX are also good alternatives for me

    OneNote is a very nice app, however, it is very feature rich and its usefullness if offset by its size, complexity and cost. For just note taking, it is way over kill, but it is a very good app.

    I use the terminal and redirect echo's to files and cat and pipe into grep when I need to read them.

    Take Note looks brilliant. Very easy to compile. Thanks for this. Looks like a cross between Tomboy and Basket Notes. Just what I needed.

    You're welcome, helliewm.

    It [takenote] allows insertion of images and on and on.

    It's also easy to set hotkeys.

    Looks great!
    But how do I use it? I can install and launch it alright, but what can I do from there?

    If I click New Notebook, I get a browser open to find something and press "New", I don't know what that something is and if I just press new nothing happens.
