Finding Evernote Replacements for Linux

"One of the applications many users ask about when migrating to Linux is Evernote. While the folks at Evernote haven't created a Linux port, you'll find plenty of apps for note taking, organization, and wrangling important personal and business documents.

"Some Linux users object to Evernote because it's not open source, but that's only half the problem. Even if you're not picky about software licensing, Evernote isn't an option on Linux. You can run the Evernote plugin on Firefox and Chrome, or you might get lucky running Evernote in Wine. But a native client? Nope. But it is possible to find quite a few free and open source alternatives that provide much of the same functionality.

"Tomboy

"Tomboy is a simple and effective system for note-taking and storing all those snippets of information that need to go somewhere. It's cross-platform, so you can work with Tomboy on Linux, Mac OS X, and Windows. And since Tomboy saves automatically as you work, it's entirely hassle-free."
