I’ve been messing about with different desktop wiki and note-taking software. So far, I have tried:
- BasKet Note Pads: This is a KDE application, and it works well, but it seems a little too in-depth for me. I just don’t get it (maybe I’m dumb).
- Zim: This, I actually liked. The only issue I have with it is that it doesn’t have hierarchical page setup, so I have to remember where my stuff is. I shouldn’t have to wonder where my “stuff” is. Maybe I’m doing it wrong, I don’t know.
- Evernote: This requires Wine, but I can manage things via the website. I think I’d prefer it if Tomboy would connect up to it and allow me to set up my notebooks that way.
- Tomboy: This is my favorite so far. I can easily create new “notebooks” and pages within them, and link different pages together with WikiWords.
I’m using Tomboy because I can set the folder where it saves things to my Dropbox, and easily sync my notes between my two computers. It makes things simple to use.
I’m also using Tasque for my to-dos. I can easily hook up to Remember the Milk and work with my tasks.
I guess I’ll use the two different productivity programs (even though I use Evolution for email right now and I could use the memos function in there). Seems to work for me right now… I was hoping for an “all-in-one” solution that hooked up to all my web services. I think that’s a pipe dream.
