Hello. I have a question to ask you.

I use a program in Windows 7 64-bit called Microsoft Office OneNote 2007 and 2010. I LOVE THIS PROGRAM!!! I am not sure if you are familiar with it, I am sure you at least have heard about it here in Linux. Now, does Linux or Debian have a similar equivalent program here in its repositories or as a third part program online that is the most feature rich? I see the free office software suite embedded with Ubuntu of LibreOffice offers nearly the same equivalent programs that Microsoft Office. I do not see anything however, equivalent to OneNote.    

One of the features I am looking for is the capturing ability of the capture whole web pages in high resolution and detailed accuracy from the actual webpage with annotations of the URL of the very webpage that is date and time stamped. I can also capture or even copy and paste just about anything from nearly any file format into the free space of OneNote like LibreOffice Writer's content. You can type and even do limited graphics works as well. I can organize each the utilized empty workspace areas created or "pages" with other pages into sections and further, groups of sections into notebooks. It has a search capability as well. It is a very useful program!  

Please reply if you have any suggestions or knowledge that are even partially feature rich like OneNote in Linux like Debian or Ubuntu either in the vast repositories or a third party program out there (free or paid), that would be much appreciated.

FYI, I am using Linux Ubuntu v11.04 64-bit.

Please reply.

Thank you!

@ pfrancois:

Hello. Nice to see you again!

Thank you for your comment.

Yes, I see this is a web browser based application (Firefox); not applicable to the whole Linux Ubuntu operating system, but other mobile operating systems. That is fine. I have done some online searching and have had a bad time trying to locate anything that is near OneNote in terms of features and functions for Linux/Debian/Ubuntu based. I am not sure if WINE will work with Linux Ubuntu; but from the little I have read, it appears 'not'. This is do. It is a fair choice.

(HINT: It is time to get the Ubuntu community of software programmers to come up with a similar fully featured open source version of Microsoft OneNote for Linux/Ubuntu operating systems. I would think Libre Office Document Foundation programmers need to come up with something similar as part of their office suite package for OneNote. :) )
