I am using tomboy for some of my notes and i use editpad lite on xp for notes.
I am looking for a good cross platform application to keep notes on both environments. Kinda getting to be a pain. I dont want to use word but something small that I can leave running like notepad or tomboy. This way I can save the notes to USB and not have to worry about syncing them manually. Just use the copy on the USB stick and back up to linux/xp once and a while.
I am also looking for a good stand alone calendar that can handle multiple accounts (if thats the right word)
Basically I do some side work and I want to keep track of my hours for each client on a separate calendar put notes in to what I did , why and when etc.
Then may be export it excel or openoffice to create an invoice of sorts.
Anyone doing this?
What do you use?
I am running Ubuntu 9.10 and I looked in the addons but nothing really jumps out at me for what I want.
Freemind may look complicated, but it's really very easy at least for the note taking I do. And it organizes things around topics (nodes) so well. I used to just make text notes or outlines in word/open office text, but I found freemind is EASIER. At least for me.
