Some very questionable application listed:

Best Note's application:

Not sure I agree with that.  Seems alot of the software in the list is his own personal software.  Makes the list very biased and unrealiable if you ask me...

That is definitely NOT the best notes program.  Gimme a break.  By the way, mouser, if you want an extremely difficult category to do the next DC "best of" review, try these note-taking software.  First, it would take forever to come up with a good list of software since there are so many, and then to pick one would be crazy.

we've been agonizing over this for ages - there is a small group of us that knows how important this category is, and how wonderful it would be to do a comprehensive review and recommendation.. but as you say, it's a mammoth job likely to drive the reviewer insane.

it's like my favorite movie "day of the jackal" - it's an assignment where whoever takes it on can never work again.
