I'm wondering if a free, open source replacement for Microsoft OneNote exists.

Features it would need to have:

  • Click anywhere on the page and start typing.
  • Automatic revision history tracking.
  • Some sort of basic drawing facility (circle text, draw extremely crude diagrams, etc.)

Not being platform-specific would be great too.

Does anyone use or know of any project that fits the bill?

Have you tried Evernote? Works on Mac, PC, iPhone, and has a web interface...it has has a free version that works very well for most users, but not open-source. Highly recommend...
