LibreOffice Notes?

I don't know, you shouldn't let me name anything anyways. However, it'd be nice if you could implement an application to compete with One Note, since it's the one advantage Microsoft still has over LO/OO.

I won't be so callous as to try to spec out an application here. However, it should as a minimum:
- Allow copying and pasting, screen grabbing, and various other input methods to create and modify pages.
- Allow searching, sorting, prioritising, grouping, organising and linking of pages.
- Allow arbitrary drawing on notes, and editing of those drawing objects.
- Allow collaberation, sharing, exporting, virtual whiteboarding maybe?

Okay I know this is a wishful finger in the air, but it would be nice to have :-).

I think this is a legit request, but it needs to come up in a mailing list/wiki page so all can add their voice/ideas/etc. This would be a huge work!

I don't think The Document Foundation has or will ever have the resources to implement this. But there are some open source (more or less) alternatives: Joplin, Turtle, Paperwork, OpenNote, CherryTree, ...
