Software Product Description

Tomboy is a desktop note-taking application for Linux, Unix, Windows, and Mac OS X. Simple and easy to use, but with potential to help you organize the ideas and information you deal with every day.

Have you ever felt the frustration at not being able to locate a website you wanted to check out, or find an email you found interesting, or remember an idea about the direction of the political landscape in post-industrial Australia? Or are you one of those desperate souls with home-made, buggy, or not-quite-perfect notes systems?

Time for Tomboy. We bet you'll be surprised at how well a little application can make life less cluttered and run more smoothly.

Pros: None

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: It isn't glitzy but this port of the Linux program is *very* useful; including the ability to easily hyperlink other notes. Be sure to activate the 'note of the day' add-in (preferences|add-ins|tools) ... it adds a "catch all" note each day titled with the date.
