Zim brings the concept of a wiki to your desktop. Store information,
link pages and edit with WYSISYG markup. Creating a new page is as easy
as linking to a non-existing page. Pages are stored in a folder structure,
like in an outliner, and can have attachments.

This tool can be used to keep track of TODO lists or ideas, to take notes
during a meeting or to draft any other kind of text (blog entries,
important mails, etc.).

See for the team mailing list.
