    1. With so many tools, it's hard to keep everyone on the same page. Notion is a new tool that unifies them all. It's like Google Docs, but everything is organized and discoverable by your team. Real collaboration in real-time.

      flcferreira 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.

      Google Docs vs WordPad opinions
      Most users think Google Docs is a great alternative to WordPad.
      flcferreira 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.

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

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

      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.
