       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
