Tomboy

Tomboy

Tomboy is a GNOME desktop note-taking application which is designed to be simple and easy to use, but at the same time help the user organize his or her ideas and information.

The key to Tomboy's usefulness lies in the ability to relate notes and ideas together. Using a WikiWiki-like linking system, organizing ideas is as simple as typing a name.

New features can be added to Tomboy by using plugins. Official plugins include: Backlinks (see the notes link to the one you are currently viewing), Bugzilla (drag a Bugzilla URL from your web browser to a tomboy note), Evolution (drag an email from Evolution into a tomboy note), Export to HTML, Fixed Width, Note of the Day, and a Sticky Notes importer.
