The Linux OS offers users a variety of applications for taking notes and keeping information accessible in one place. Two popular choices, Tomboy Notes and Xpad, provide quick and easy ways to coral a stampede of wild notes and information.
Note-taking apps have few features in common. That makes picking one a matter of personal preference. I find that Tomboy Notes and Xpad combine to create an ad-hoc pair of tools to suit many work styles.
Tomboy is a simple and easy-to-use desktop note-taking application for Linux. It also has ports to Windows and Mac platforms as well as Unix.
