I've found ZIM desktop Wiki to be a similar application. It is OpenSource and as such it is free for both personal and commercial use.
Tomboy is another popular open source note taking application, but I prefer Zim for Windows, but Zim is not available for Unbutu Linux in an easy to install format, (so when I'm using Unbutu, Zim is not available).
Edit: By coincidence, I have just discovered ZIM IS available for Unbutu. If you go to the Unbutu Software Center, you will find it filed under Accessories and not under Office
Appreciate the explanation.
