Notecase in Linux Format Magazine (again)

I've got a tip from Ian (a Notecase user), that the Notecase has been mentioned in the new issue (107) of the Linux Format magazine.

This is the second time that the Notecase appears in this magazine, nice. This time it was a product comparison between Basket, Knowit, NoteCase, Tomboy, TuxCards and Zim.

I don't know full details, but here is what Ian informed me:

The comment for notecase is "The best GTK-based note taking tool around, mature, feature-laden and very snappy in use" and they give it a rating of 8/10. It is only beaten in the ratings by 'Basket' which gets 9/10.

Thanks Ian, thanks Linux Format people :)
