LXer: Tomboy - Yet Another Notes-Taking Application

Published at LXer:

A few days ago I reviewed BasKet, the wonderful KDE application for taking notes, so today I decided upon Tomboy, which is an application for GNOME. Tomboy does not provide as many features as BasKet, but it might be the right choice for those using GNOME. It provides global hotkeys, spell-checking while typing, and several options for formatting the text, like highlighting. It can be embedded in the system tray and it uses a low amount of resources.

Watch out. Tomboy is written in C# and includes Mono. If you wanted to stay away from M$ don't install or use Tomboy.
