    Notion is a great promise if and only if you are to take the time needed for the learning curve. It is so heavy in features that it does not compare to the simplicity of Wordpad. Notion's thing is to allow the creation of personal databases. Wordpad's thing is to simply write some text that doesn't require heavy editting.

    It's not a native stand-alone app. You need to run it in your browser. Should it work as a native app without overloading my poor hardware with a browser, I would consider it a good option.

    It isn't cheap. And it may be heavier to load than Wordpad. Otherwise, it is a great option.

    Wordpad comes with Windows, but Word is commercial and has more features than Wordpad. Word may have more features, but is slower, while Wordpad is super lightweight and simple. I'm looking for a lightweight and fast word processor for Linux so I can write quick RTF documents when I don't need the advanced features of a full-fledged word processor, like Wordpad for Windows.

    Not lightweight, costs a decent amount of money. In short, not suitable if you only need something comparable to MS Wordpad.
