I'm a linux nub.

Postby steveringer08 » Fri Mar 04, 2011 10:58 pm

Hello everyone, im new to the realm of linux and just wanted to say hello. Is there any equivalent to one note from microsoft office out there yet? Is there also a list of recommended programs for linux that I should try?

Thank you,
-Steve

welcome to the Mint family forums

The idea that Bill Gates has appeared like a knight in shining armour to lead all customers out of a mire of technological chaos neatly ignores the fact that it was he who, by peddling second-rate technology, led them into it in the first place.

Hello steveringer08,
Welcome to Mint Forum :P
A search of Software Manager (Menu>System>Administration>Software Manager) under the "Office" or "Accessories" categories will probably produce a note-taking application.
Personally I just copy/paste snippets of code etc and type a brief explanatory note for future reference using gedit :D

I like exploring new applications when I get a chance to play. I found one recently that helps me with schoolwork and stuff, and I even wrote my own li'l blog post about it here! But the Mint Software Manager has them nicely categorized so they're easy to find.

Not quite a noobie but non-geeky and love the point-and-shoot simplicity of Mint!

Thank you Robin - I had Xournal installed on a previous version of Mint and found it very useful - after I did a clean install I couldn't remember what it was called.....been looking for it for days...
