You might consider Treepad Lite (www.treepad.com). It's a tiny, free-form tree-structured
notebook/database/text editor. It stores stuff as plain text, so you can easily copy/paste to
other software. It's available for Windows and Linux, and it's free --- though more elaborate
versions are available as shareware.
(No connection, etc. Just a happy, long-term user.)
