Hi All,

I'd like to recommend Gnote as a note-taking application for the Xubuntu
default installation.  Gnote is an actively maintained C++ ongoing fork of
Tomboy.  I know that Xfce has a notes plugin, but the functionality of Gnote
is much better.

Here's information on the Lucid package:
Here's information on the software itself:
Commit info to show maintenance:

I am not necessarily recommending it for the default panel installation, but
just to be included.  I've used it extensively from within Xubuntu Karmic
and have been very impressed with how it works.  It does not require the
xfapplets plugin to appear in the notification area.

What do you think?
