       Zim  is  a  graphical text editor used to maintain a collection of wiki
       pages.  Each page can contain links to other pages,  simple  formatting
       and  images.   Pages  are  stored  in  a  folder  structure, like in an
       outliner, and can have attachments. Creating a new page is as  easy  as
       linking  to a nonexistent page.  All data is stored in plain text files
       with wiki formatting. Various plugins provide additional functionality,
       like  a task list manager, an equation editor, a tray icon, and support
       for version control.

       Zim can be used to: * Keep an archive of  notes  *  Take  notes  during
       meetings  or  lectures  *  Organize task lists * Draft blog entries and
       emails * Do brainstorming
