Tomboy is a free and open-source desktop notetaking application written for Unix-like (including Mac OS X and Linux) and Microsoft Windows operating systems,[1] written in C# using Gtk#. Tomboy is part of the GNOME desktop environment personal information management software and achieved widespread popularity as the default note taking app in early Ubuntu releases.[2] As Ubuntu changed over time and its cloud sync software Ubuntu One came and went, Tomboy inspired various forks and clones. Its interface is a notepad with a wiki-like linking system to connect notes together. Words in the note body that match existing note titles become hyperlinks automatically, making it simple to construct a personal wiki. For example, repeated references to favorite artists would automatically be highlighted in notes containing their names. As of release 1.6 it supports text entries and hyperlinks to the World Wide Web, but not graphic image linking or embedding.
