There are times when I wished that I did not run Linux, so that I could use nifty applications, like this one, to manage, sort, and classify my data/articles/readings.

I am slowly migrating my article materials here but I would prefer something on my end of the computer world. Also, citeulike is nice but has limited functional capacity.

If anyone knows of anything like Scribe but for a Linux platform, do give a shout out.


  1. I’m always looking for someone else to use FE:

  3. hey joe

    i will check out the freemind. my minds needs more freedom but i have to agree with andrew up above, the scribe looks worthy of love and have heard from users it is a very nice partner. i hope freemind has a good UI and is easy (more or less) to navigate.

  4. you could, if you can find a copy, run sheepshearer under linux and then run bookends by sunnysoft which really transforms my research practice…
