I have used Nevernote/Nixnote on my systems and it works great. I use it for my forensic/computer tech classes, information and data collection. I don’t necessarily put any sensitive stuff there, but things I access from anywhere.
Don’t forget to get the Chrome/Chromium extension for Evernote, it works great, also. Too bad Firefox got left out of this.
