For my note-making needs, the Xfce notes plugin works perfectly. Even if
the new version is IMO a bit more complex/not as intuitive, it's still
very simple and does what it is supposed to do.
I didn't find any good screenshots of Gnote easily. Jim, could you post
a few somewhere (showing off the core features/features you think makes
a difference between Gnote/Xfce applet) and link to them? Thanks in
I'm open in including it, if it's as good as you say.
