Comments about Joplin as a Alternative to Microsoft OneNote
Same structure as Onenote, supports images, looks modern.
Doesn't have all the same features (like drawing on the screen) but also has its own unique features Onenote doesn't have.
Also runs on Linux, which is the biggest plus for me.13
pretty and very clear user interface11
it doesn't have pen input support5
Onenote allows you to write or draw wherever you want on the screen while Joplin is limited. It makes sense, as Joplin stores everything in plain markdown documents, but it's something severely lacking in all of the Onenote alternatives I've seen.1
It's simple enough when you need to write small notes or to-do quickly, with a clean interface, but it's also powerful with cloud sync, cross platform (Linux included), and support formatting, images and attachments.1
Capture inspiration from Pinterest, YouTube or web pages, organize ideas in one place and add your notes. Make mood boards or quick sketches to visualize and present ideas!.

Standard Notes Features
Comments about Standard Notes as a Alternative to Microsoft OneNote
Encrypted, very lightweight and not owned by Microsoft.0
Very, VERY BASIC, its open source and free but its basic and the features it offers are paid compared to one note's free model2
Good for those options to store online or sync between devices. Devices: Windows app, web-browser, android app...
I prefer this one than SimpleNote, in any case, to share between devices nowadays i recommend telegram or protectedtext. For text, Onenote. I didnt like turtl, joplin or elephant.0
Don't have sections or pages, just notes.0
The free version is only plain text editing - can't even paste images or use bold and italics. There simply aren't enough features in the free one to determine whether I like it enough to pay for premium.5
Evernote is a cross-platform, freemium app designed for note taking, organizing, and archiving.
Comments about Evernote as a Alternative to Microsoft OneNote
Evernote is clunky, overwhelming, and slow. It has a lot of cool features that used to be relatively unique, but it's grown stagnant. Also the mobile version is pretty buggy.6
Easy to use, and easy to search.-1
The possibility of inserting sections is missing.12
I dont use it for writing text (much better OneNote), i just use it for saving webpages or text from webpages. I think it´s quite slow, and somehow i dont like that much. Also, I dont trust neither expect any privacy with Microsoft, but it´s the best option i have to store the webpages.0
Evernote's handwriting is seriously lacking. Especially on the android platform.1
Xournal++ (a fork of Xournal) is a handwriting Notetaking software with PDF annotation support. Written in C++ with platform independent GTK, supporting Linux, e.g. Ubuntu, Debian, Arch, Suse, macOS and Windows 10. Supports Pen input like Wacom Tablets.
Comments about Xournal++ as a Alternative to Microsoft OneNote
Nearly similar interface. Lightweight, open source with latex support and voice notes. Flexible layout which was missing in xournal.1
With Xournal++ you own your notes and can save them wherever you want - you are not forced to store them somewhere in the cloud as it's the case with OneNote2
In the version available for Chromebooks, the option for typed text is not working.0
Cross-platform and well supporting stylus pens, Xournalpp implements most if not all funcionalities of OneNote, including recording audio alongside pen strokes. Plus, it's free and open source!0
It is full open source, Supports handwriting (stylus) Allows to create annotations on PDF-s (OneNote doesn't)0
