Comparison of notemaking software
I've noticed that different people here use different notemaking software. And some of it might be more useful that the one I use. So I've gathered some high-level data on main parameters of notemaking software. Here it is.
It's also here: https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1YGUw-WVJoY4xPeBU7E2IS97aDUStBnOfjzHK6uoCwuM/edit?usp=sharing
I've opened the spreadsheet for edits, so you can add to it if you want. Edit: now I've really opened it.
What -- Why is it important
Proprietary -- You probably don't want your database to die in case developers go all Google or Microsoft on you.
File format -- Plaintext (or xml) provide portability and platform independency.
Needs web? -- Web provides portability and vulnerability.
Free? -- Duh.
OS -- IMO, you want at least Win (default global user OS) and probably Linux (default global corporate OS, also open-source). You might want to have Android for portability. Mac OS locks you in Apple hardware but provides portability to their mobile devices.
API -- For all your customization needs.
etc. -- Other things of note.
Disclaimer: I use Sublime_zk. I didn't try others. I give utmost importance to the first five criterias (I've greyed the ones that I don't like) and don't really need media embedded in my notes or mobile support for them.
