Hi there,
my son bought a netbook yesterday (a Lenovo 100S) for his highschool needs. Now we try to populate it with all the essential programs and I wonder, what you would suggest as an allround note-taking programm. It should be light-weight and unobtrusive. I myself use ConnectedText and RightNote at the moment, but they seem too full of features for quick & dirty note taking in a school environment. I thought of ZIM: it’s quite powerful with a clean and tidy interface.

Any suggestions?

Thanks a lot

OneNote is probably his best bet.

Onenote is really great for students

I never could warm up to OneNote, though I really wanted to. I find Evernote the best thing for taking unstructured notes while not having to worry about syncing and overwriting something important.

At the risk of being a Luddite… if I’m a classroom or lecture hall taking notes I’d want to concentrate on what’s being said but still be able to get down enough in notes to remind me of the essential points of the lecture.  I’d opt for the simplest single pane outliner to take notes down and then I could go back and edit or reorganize them to facilitate my later studying.  For me that would be TkOutline.
