Gnote started as a C++ port of Tomboy and has moved its own path later. Source


Gnote is a simple note-taking application for GNOME desktop environment. It allows you to capture your ideas, link them together using WikiWiki-style links, group together in notebooks and some extra features for everyday use. Source


Scales well (reviewed release 40.1), only the settings menu does not fit the screen properly. But: Opening notes is tedious and requires the use of the enter key on the software keyboard.
