What is the best "dump it all" note taker for Linux currently that resembles YW?

Already posted it in the "What programs would you like to see ported to Linux?" section but I'm curious if there's something like it out there?

My main problem with wiki note takers like Tomboy and Zim are well... I don't know how to set them up to properly link all those notes in such a way that I would be interested in reading them. I really don't have a right to say that it's not for me since I haven't explored it in depth but when I look at a tabbing inteface vs. a hierarchal notes sidepane or a wiki-like view of my notes, I don't really feel like I have a bird's eye view of all the contents. I could use folders and Leafpad which I do but I really wanted an alternative that just loads all those notes in one quick easy to view set up that doesn't look like a start page but more like a browser view style of viewing with a very light feel.

There's also BasKet Notes but I feel the interface and speed is more suited for a web based site when using it. Notecase is more of a traditional hierarchal folder based note taker but when I want an interface like that, I feel Google Documents is even simpler and more appealing than it's interface.

No I haven't though from the screenshots it looks like a prettier version of NoteCase. Is there a tabbing interface for it?
