Cris & Matt did a review of a take of Note-taking apps on LAS
at 50:00 mins in http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0DKOxgUkAog
And for KDE lovers Basket Notes is outstanding capabilities for note takers.
It's in the repo version 1.8.1 and runs great no issues on newer since no work on this since 2010.
But has all the features I need.
To autostart to system tray just change the command in autostart from basket %f to basket -h
in Settings>Startup>Add Program Applications tab.
Also review of Vim for the power users. But found Basket Notes having all I needed.
Insert Links,Pics take clips of web pages and insert even add actual KDE launcher icons to launch from notes.
