Tomboy is a feature-rich notes application for GNOME with support for spell-checking, links, font style and size, bullet lists, global shortcuts, and plugins.

BasKet

This is one of my favorite KDE applications. BasKet is called by some a kill application for Linux, due to its completeness regarding features and a different approach compared to other notes applications. BasKet organizes your notes in one or two columns, but it also allows to make them float around in the workspace. It supporting inserting images, links, URIs to local files, tag notes, use priority colors, import/export, backup and restore notes, and much, much more.

  • 5 reasons Valve's Steam Machine dream is still very alive
    Steam Machines? More like has-been machines, am I right? Actually, no: while many people are giving Valve's PC-console-hybrids the cold shoulder, this gamer reckons they'll be worth the wait. I realise that I'm part of a shrinking group still backing Valve's SteamOS-powered Linux boxes, and it's not difficult to see why the hype around them has all but evaporated. Several controller-related delays, U-turns by seemingly committed hardware partners and a lack of news from the top has made many think that Valve is blowing hot air.
