Port of great Mac app?


I'm interested in using on Linux an open-source Mac app called Notational Velocity. Is there a clearinghouse site where I can bring this up to people who know how to do this kind of thing and are looking for a challenge?

Notational Velocity is a note-taking app that is very similar to NoteLens, which runs on Windows.

Thank you.

http://live.gnome.org/Gnote is an equivalent software already available on Linux.

Thanks for your reply. Yes, I'm familiar with Gnote and the original gnome-based Tomboy, from which Gnote was either ported or adapted, I believe. I've used Tomboy for several years, but every time I use my wife's Windows machine, I remember how speedy and uncluttered NoteLens is. I agree Tomboy/Gnote is a reasonable substitute, but they're not quite as slick as NoteLens and as I hope Notational Velocity is.

If it's open-source, have you tried compiling the source code for Linux?

Mac has an Open Source app? I thought that all their stuff was closed. I have an iPad I'd love to get a Linux distro running on that but know that is wishful thinking. Can't do the iTunes bit on Lucid. Have to use Dropbox to do anything with it. That sucks. Wish I had won a laptop or netbook from Dummies.com instead of an iPad.
