  I used to use Tomboy as my main desktop wiki.  Then I switched to
emacs-wiki, and more
recently from that to org-mode.

  Tomboy gets the linking aspect of a wiki in a simple GUI.  This gives it a
lot of power over
simple note taking, but the power of any wiki.

  Some features in Tomboy and emacs-wiki which as far as I have discovered
are not in
org-mode though are backlinks  (ie "what links here"),  and simple text
searches accross
the entire wiki.  emacs-wiki does this by a simple shell pipe using find
which should be easy
to do in org-mode.

  There is also a lot of talk going on in the Tomboy cotroversies involving
gnote.  That is a new
app, which ports Tomboy out from mono to straight C++.  It attempts to
duplicate the user
experience of Tomboy as much as possible, though I did read on the gnote web
site there
is one feature (pinning)  that they are changing.

  I have run Tomboy and gnote and they do look very similar.

  There is also a lot of talk about this in Ubuntu, and apparently Ubuntu is
about to drop Tomboy and
replace it with gnote, over the mono issue, and similarly for other mono

  One nice GUI feature of Tomboy and gnote.  The default is new notes are
opened in their own
window, which is small.  So you can readily get many notes on screen side by
side, and use
the window manager to organize them by placement.
