For years I've been using OneNote 2007 for all my notes and ideas.Despite its age, I preferred that as works offline, doesn't try to get my data up onto MS Cloud.


However, I knew that need to change, so have been looking around for modern Note -Taking software to replace it.

I'm loving Obsidian, incredible update in note-taking abilities


and recently I discovered Logseq. Also fabulous (y)(y)(y)


What do you use to take all your notes, and why?

Standard Notes and Sticky Notes. Sticky Notes is basically a lighter version of One Notes.
Sticky Notes :) (y)
The big advantage is that you don't have to consciously save it. Since it stands out on the desktop, there is less risk of losing it.
....However, sticky notes on real desks are often lost. Mystery.:coffee:

Use both Standard notes and simple notes. I have to stop using simple notes as they are not privacy focused and thinking of moving to Obsidian or Notesnook. Also heard a lot about Joplin.

If anyone has a nice comparison of Obsidian v/s Notesnook v/s Joplin, would love that.
