Ok #fediverse, I need you help finding a free/libre open source (#floss) tool that works on #Windows + #Ubuntu (or can be installed on a server) that does the following:

* Hand written notes
* Typed notes
* Import & handwrite over images
* Import & highlight & handwrite over PDFs/text docs

I want basically a FLOSS equivalent of Microsoft OneNote for when I start grad school in the fall.

@remram44 and I have been looking, to no avail...


@vickysteeves @remram44 I've never found a true onenote alternative. I ended up using emacs' org-mode for most things. Xournal for hand writing, but honestly didn't productive use it. There are mods you can make to org-mode that will display images inline..
I ended up just taking photos of my notes. Now, with touchscreens, I'd probably draw in krita and append/display in org-mode mode.
