This is the best solution of organizing stuff...

I've been using this for 3 years.

before that, I had used Evernote, Zotero just for making note and have some organized stuff for very long period time.

Since I have found Zim...

I had to move the whole material that I have noted, but It was definitely worth to do.

I'm using Linux mint~ which is perfect for using Zim.

I think there are still some disadvantage of applying Zim to Window OS in some extension.

But I highly recommend this tool, and altering OS to Linux. :)

Zim is easy quick and support is good. Keeping on my desktop and thus my ideas private is important to me.

It's an extendable (Python-written) desktop wiki. If you want to own your wiki entries, store them on your Desktop using Zim.

Zim is nice. It has to grow in features though.

It's fairly good, not all instructions are too clear at first (ie it tells you conflicting information when creating a new notebook, it says you use the same folder, but doesn't tell you it overwrites all the notes in that folder!) has potential and I'm switching from Tomboy to give this a shot,but wont yet delete tomboy as it does simply work with no troubles. But I'm hoping zim will give me a slightly difference approach to note keeping

I tend to do the tags:taggoeshere trick and chase backlinks from the blank filler pages using Alt+B. Using a namespace means I can close the tags namespace and get it out of my face. It's not ideal - hashtagging and a tag cloud or list sorted by frequency would be nicer, plus a search box... idea for a plugin maybe?

Zim is pretty cool in that it creates a hierarchical list of your pages, however, it doesn't automagically update your page names when you change the links in a page. This is a pain. I am not sure if the hierarchy makes it worthwhile, will probably revert to Tomboy notes again.

It's actually a great software. If only the automatic linking would work for non-camel case keywords. You don't use camel case in normal text and it's stupid if you have to go through every existing page and search for keywords to link whenever you create a new page.
This flaw sadly makes it useless to me.
