Thanks for sharing your experience.
I know all proprietary services are user-friendly, but my main
requirement is: only opensource, only local. I don't trust any
closed-source shit, and especially micro$oft and any it's products. But
this is my choice.

Thanks Gordon.
After trying bunch of todo apps, I use zim now because I need to build
fast lists, like: buy today, prepare to holiday, buy this month, etc.

Most of them don't need such features like recurring or else, but on
planning they are required.

Task Coach was the only app that have most (if not all) of features,
including tree-style tasks. But I had some unexpected bugs and stopped
using it. It is also written in python and is open source.

So anyway I need 2 apps, one (ZIM) for note-taking and building fast
lists, and second for planning with notifications, recurring, daily
events etc.

Anyway, my main reason I wrote here, for ZIM lists rearranging items is
very required. If you think the same, please support it here:

Take a look to TaskCoach and KOrganizer (if on linux), maybe you will
like them. No any other open source apps have so many features
(tree-style, subtasks, recurring, notifications, etc)
