Great Apps to Take Notes

It has often been said that information confers power, and that the most important currency in our culture today is information. Keeping track of my bits and pieces of information has unfortunately been an issue for some years. In part, this is because of my passable short term memory, coupled with what can only be described as 'brain fog'. To combat this, I arm myself with open source software that helps me efficiently capture a lot of information. I generally prefer to keep my information local and cloud-free, primarily for security reasons.

There is a wide range of competent note taking software for Linux, and it is difficult for a single article to provide coverage to them all. Instead, I have compiled this roundup of my pick of 5 excellent note applications for organizing, sharing, and taking notes. Besides the basic note-taking functionality, the software featured here provides a good array of advanced features. I am a strong advocate of open source software; all of the titles here are released under a freely distributable license.
