I've found my way to this post with the same question. InfoSelect, previously, Tornado notes, is amazing in how it allows us to collect random bits of data and make sense out of them. For my purpose, an application is needed, not just search capability.
I'm looking at QuickFox Notes and ReminderFox, both useful addons to Firefox and Thunderbird, but not quite the same as InfoSelect.
I'm also looking at Rednotebook and TaskCoach as possibilities which run under windows and linux.
I love Time & Chaos for contact management, but a little light on the notes side and windows only <sigh>.
You might also want to check out Zim. It's Tomboy Notes on steroids, multi-platform and easily synchronized using Dropbox.
None of these applications match the capabilities and ease of use of Info Select or Evernote, but if you employ more than one of them you can come close.
I, along with a lot of others, have abandoned Info Select for Evernote (Mac, Windows, and most smartphones). Sadly, the Evernote folk have no plans to develop a local Linux client, but there's a third party open source Evernote client called Nixnote which works reasonably well and Evernote runs well under Wine.
