    The first thing it's the possibility to work offline. It's opensource and free and it can be used in portable mode.

    Obsidian is a good alternative for notes and links, it’s lacking only the powerful tables as in Notion. You can create and modify tables using markdown and plug-ins, but I feel like Notion is still superior.

    Because it's based on Markdown files, it's so much faster. It has its own syntax too, that prioritizes linking files/ideas easily, similar to Notion. Also, it has a super-easy plugin system for extending it if that's your jam.

    Obsidian is not an alternative, per se, but it is a really great complement to Notion, because it works well to view Notion exports. (It is kind of like using Notion with local storage. Or at least a workable solution while you are waiting for AnyType.io to get out of alpha/beta.)

    Good for notes, fantastic for spreadsheets, but Notion is still superior for table content.

    This alternative is disputed. Evernote is still a legitimate alternative to Notion, but it might have issues that some users think are important.

    Notion does databases and so much more that Evernote cannot.

    User-friendly Is a Must! Evernote has folders and I can preview my notes before 'opening' them, so to speak. The clean white background with the Green logo makes for a nice visual. An alternative to Notion? It well may be. I think Evernote looks better when sharing notes/lists/to-do-lists. That clean background, logo and all, shows up in the recipient's email.

    Not as feature-packed as Notion but a lot faster. It uses a very similar approach to organizing and structuring content.

    Notion is a bit over-engineered, things get messy really fast. It's okay for a single user, while Nuclino shines as a team tool.

    You can create databases and also hierarchical documents just like on Notion, the only difference is that Quire is that 'everything is a task' different from the 'everything is a page' model from Notion.
