Summary: Gnote continues to earn good feedback and Hubert Figuiere puts his name down for a place in GNOME’s board
Gnote may be a young project, but it is already superior to Tomboy in some ways and it has entered most of the ‘big’ GNU/Linux distributions by now [1, 2, 3, 4]. This program has just gotten another public endorsement, which is great.
What is a big deal is that Gnote does what I need it to do. The controvery surrounding it be hanged (and you can use your favourite search engine to learn about the controversy). I like Gnote. It’s useful. And until something better comes along, it’s going to be my note application of choice
GNOME elections are coming and the developer of Gnote is among the listed candidates.
Below you will find a list of candidates who are running for the GNOME Foundation Board of Directors. A short summary statement from each candidate and a link to their full candidacy announcement is provided to help you learn more about them.

I have been involved with Free Software for a decade or so, mostly working on the application side: AbiWord, gnote, etc. I have attended several Free Software conferences as resources permitted and given talk on several occasion. I have a true faith in GNOME and what it brings to users of Free Software, and I truly believe that’s where the future is.
