If open source, simple, desktop based are the criteria, here is the app.

A very good application. It is not just for short notes. I tried many apps but all of them was either too heavy or too limited for extensive notes. I like that all notes in fact are html pages. And I find its screenshot-snipping tool very useful. A pity detail however... at the moment KeepNote for Windows has no check-spelling tools.
