Notetab runs in wine on Linux
I run Slackware 12.1 (but, though Slack *is* popular amongst a certain
crowd, this distro is not everyone's choice of distro). The appeal: huge
community support; simple and easy; many programmers contributions as
sizeable portion of said community; lends itself well to customization; I
have *full* control (over the what where how of what's on my sys [apps,
etc.] and how it's configured).

with an editor] and ditto with customization and ditto with my *full*

with the operating systems.
It's so much fun to run two operating systems simultaneously on one hardware
