MyNotex: encrypted note manager

There are several quality note managers available for Linux. What makes MyNotex stand aside from the crowd is its streamlined workflow and free-form information management. The GUI is also pretty polished and resembles office suites closely. Among the note managers we came across earlier, only Cherrytree seems comparable with respect to look and feel. However, the functionality is unmatched at the time of writing.

MyNotex starts lightning fast, though creating a new note and saving seemed to be slightly slower than traditional text editors. however, the functionality of MyNotex compensates this.
