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
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
into a tomboy note), Export to HTML, Fixed Width, Note of the
Day, and a Sticky Notes importer.
