A step back into Linux: LXLE

Strangely enough, I just did a similar move. Purchased a refurbished Dell Latitude E6420 (i5 2nd gen with 4GB+250GB and nVidia 4200m) for approx. $200CAD. The machine came direct from Dell with Win7Pro, but I installed Linux Mint in a dual boot configuration—it boots and runs so much faster than Windows 7! I’ve also used LXLE on older boxes and it works wonderfully, but this box was powerful enough for the Cinnamon desktop. My favourite Ubuntu-flavoured note-taking apps include:

1. LibreOffice 4.4 - Office suite (installed)
2. Remarkable (http://remarkableapp.net) Markdown editor
3. Scrivener for Linux - Works great btw!
4. XMind for mindmapping
5. myBase 7 (http://wjjsoft.com/) for note-taking

Although myBase 7 is still in beta, the program works great in both Linux and Windows. Note that it is now HTML-driven rather than RTF-based.
FWIW, Glen
